Stop Drinking the Kool-Aid: Occupy TFA

TFA alum Gary Rubinstein has long worked to reform TFA into a force for more positive educational reform.  His criticism has gotten more severe of late and reflects an urgency to bring about needed change.  In this vein, he has started an Occupy TFA blog to encourage other TFA members and alum to help expedite these needed changes.   This is very encouraging to see and I encourage TFA members and alum to support this effort.  At the same time, until such changes are made, districts should also put pressure on the organization – by not engaging with TFA or doing so only in very constrained ways (for instance, only on a short term basis for hard to staff schools).
