Swift to Hear; Slow to Speak

It’s already made it’s way across the Internet, but this site would be remiss in not mentioning the speech by TFA Alum Camika Royal – one of the most impassioned and compelling speeches on education reform in quite some time at the Opening Ceremonies for Teach For America’s 2012 Summer Institute.  She provides commentary along with a transcript at Swift to Hear; Slow to Speak: A Message to TFA Teachers, Critics, and Education Reformers.  The video is here.  My read is that it is not only strong constructive criticism of TFA and other ed reformers, but offers powerful guidance to TFA recruits from a wise woman.  This is the kind of leadership TFA needs.
