This chapter examines the launch of Teach For All (TFAll) and research on its affiliate programmes. It first considers the high-profile milieu in which the organisation was launched, at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2007. The chapter then explores the ways in which it has franchised its model (and brand) for keen social entrepreneurs to implement around the world by documenting key supports for its consistent growth. Finally, the chapter provides an overview of research on various TFAll affiliate programmes around the world, paying particular attention to those outside of the United States and United Kingdom. This review highlights both themes and geographies that have been well traversed in the literature, as well as others that have been overlooked.
