“Looking Past the Spin” Of Teach For America


I’ve written in the past about how highly I value Rethinking Schools Magazine. The magazine, and articles from it, are on many of my “The Best…” lists, including The Best Magazine/Newspaper Websites For Useful News & Intellectual Stimulation.

They’ve done it again.

They’re publishing an exceptional article by Barbara Miner titled “Looking Past The Spin,” which is a not-to-be-missed analysis of Teach For America.

It reinforces, and amplifies, all of my concerns about TFA, which I wrote about in Why I Oppose Teach For America Coming To Sacramento.

Our School Board will be taking a final vote next week on whether to invite TFA into Sacramento.
