It is hard to believe but Teach for America is even worse than I thought it was.
From the Times Union:
There was a rare audience at this special board meeting.
But Wright said Vitti assured her that Duval will be able to recruit at least 50 teachers a year if TFA’s contract is not renewed.
Only sixty of the first 580 are currently in the district. That's about 12 percent. How couldn't we do better than that?
The article also didn't mention the additional 6.25 million they have received in QEA funds.
Must be nice to work for TFA, you have enough time to go to special board meetings during the day, unlike real teachers.
Willie asked what will we do without these folks? the answer is we will do just fine.
