The Sham of Teach for America: Part One

The Sham of Teach for America: Part One is the first in a two part radio series taking a critical look at TFA.  “In this first part of our two-part series on TFA, we challenge the claims that TFA makes to support its mission by taking a closer look at TFA recruitment, training, its impact on teacher education, its approach to diversity, and the impossibility of the TFA model to create spaces for authentic teaching and learning.”  The segment features educators, researchers, and TFA corps members.  They’ve really done a nice job in this piece.  It’s largely what I would’ve loved to have done on this blog if I had the time and skill.  I look forward to part two.
