The Arkansas Walton Family Foundation has donated $20 million to Teach For America. This donation will provide thousands of rigorous teaching positions to recent college graduates. While the money will help many U.S. states, the highest number of teaching positions is slated for Los Angeles.

TFA has immense success rates, with about 94 percent of the L.A. corps members finding a job this year upon leaving the program.
