The Nation released a brilliant piece exposing how Teach For America spends millions to silence critiques of the organization by its alums and others. Below I have included selected Twitter quotes and photos from excellent investigative report by George Joseph on Storify. Twitter blasts usually get lost in the annals of Twitter history— so I turn to Storify to log the conversation. What is Storify? It “helps making sense of what people post on social media.” Users curate voices and turn them into stories.
