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.

Audience questions and comments are featured at the end of the podcast.
