    It’s not the fault of the soldiers in War. By analogy, teachers/student teacher/interns/TFA, ers, in many cases shouldn’t be blamed either. Soldiers who volunteered for Vietnam, Iraq, etc., need to have their “service honored” … and … I believe this is true, also, with “most” TFA teachers.

    Unfortunately, they are used in a political power struggle, where policy battles constitute a different kind of gamesmanship or War. Other, that is than with the “Military Industrial Complex” and American hegemony, TFAers are being used in the “Educational e-Industrial Complex” with interesting hegemonic goals stated by the corporate proponents.

    Therefore, a critical deconstruction perspective is needed to uncover the “cloaked” inequity in the system and examine the meaning and purpose of education for us all.
