Rocket Scientist explains why he didn’t choose TFA

Nalin A. Ratnayake was a research engineer for the Aerodynamics and Propulsion Branch at NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center.  “Unable to ignore a stronger calling within” himself to attend “to the front lines of a social inequity that has been a thorn in my brain for a long time” Mr Ratnayake is switching careers to become a high school physics teacher.   In “Why I Didn’t Choose TFA” he not only describes why he chose another program instead (The Boston Teacher Residency), but suggests that TFA has some very fundamental problems if it truly aims to help poor students.
