I’ve had concerns for a long time about Teach For America, the national organization that recruits college students from prestigious universities to teach in inner-city schools for two years.

Claus von Zastrow informs, clarifies, and enlightens — as he so often does skillfully — us all on this topic in his post “Why the Love/Hate Relationship with TFA?”

His post helped me get clearer that my issues are not necessarily with TFAers but, instead, with how the media often portrays them and how some “school reformers” might use them.
