Middlebury students urge classmates to Reconsider TFA

A group of students a Middlebury College is urging their follow students to reconsider joining TFA and instead find other ways of getting involved in education.  They note that “TFA is “deprofessionalizing” the teaching profession” and that rather than challenging the status quo, TFA is helping maintain an unequal system.   There are a growing number of college students across the country that are seeing past the marketing spin of TFA and recognizing that the inequity we see in our schools is primarily related to the inequity we see in society (refer to http://studentsresistingtfa.k12newsnetwork.com/, and recent student articles from YaleHarvard, and Columbia College speaking out against TFA).  And, this inequity will not be solved by the same corporate backers that caused it.
