Two years ago, when he was leading a wilderness trip for Outward Bound, Alex Elson met Willy, a bright seventeen-year-old who couldn't read. The system had failed him, and I wondered,"What good was I doing?, Alex recalls. Five months later, Alex joined the Social Studies Program at Teachers College. Janeen Richards, 41, had always dreamed of becoming a history teacher, but faced with a tough job market after college, she'd taken her advisor's suggestion and gone to pharmacy school instead.
