Dear Karen:

Congratulations on Tech Corps’ continued success in bringing communities’ vast resources of individuals and businesses into our schools. We at NEA applaud Tech Corps as a valued partner in supporting quality education in American’s schools.

We know President Clinton’s challenge to ensure every American student has access to up-to-date information technology by the 21st century will require the efforts of all constituents. Tech Corps provides a valuable model for how working together within communities we can achieve this goal. It is exciting that within two short years this project is assisting students and educators in 43 states and the District of Columbia. This is a wonderful example of how industry and educators together can improve teaching and learning throughout our nation. As the people who work in education, we welcome you as colleagues in this effort.


Robert F. Chase
