Should Teach For America be kicked out? #NPE17CA

Is Teach For America’s approach to teaching, curriculum, and education policy so egregious that they should be kicked out of communities and districts? We discussed this and more with a Teach For America alum, a former Teach For America trainer and a current classroom educator in episode 15 of the Truth For America podcast.

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.

Episode 15 was LIVE at the 2017 Network For Public Education Conference held in Oakland, California. Tina Andres (Southern California Special Education teacher) and Dr. Barb Veltri (Northern Arizona University professor) are our special guests. Audience questions and comments are featured at the end of the podcast.

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

  1. EGREGIOUS is the exactly right word: not only wrongheaded, but to my mind immoral.
