TFA and Relay Occupy Early Childhood Education

The new episode of the Truth For America podcast is now available. We discuss early childhood education and the entrance of Teach For America and Relay Graduate School into the classrooms of America’s youngest students.

Episode 21 features two TFA corps members that were assigned to early childhood education. We discuss their perspectives on the lack of relevance of the training that they received at TFA Summer Institute and the Relay Graduate School. They also discuss their departure from Teach For America, the required usage of their Americorps stipends for graduate school and other many other issues.

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. Dr. Barb Veltri guest hosts this episode.
