Teach For America exported and going Global!

Did you know that Teach For America is being exported worldwide?

Truth For America is a podcast about Teach For America (TFA) that provides voice to educators, parents, students, and other key stakeholders. Truth For America is co-hosted by Dr. Julian Vasquez Heilig and Dr. T. Jameson Brewer.

They are joined in Episode 12 by Dr. Rolf Straubhaar, a University of Georgia researcher and George Joseph, a journalist who contributes to a variety of publications. Their conversation focuses on Teach For All, the American export of the Teach For America model around the world. The discussion focuses on a recent article that George Joseph published in The Nation about Teach For All where he interviewed participating teachers in India. The podcast also discussed Rolf Straubhaar’s peer reviewed research that discusses the role of Teach For All in Latin America and his conversations with corps members in Brazil.

Truth For America is sponsored by the Network for Public Education Action.
