If you needed another reason to dislike Teach for America

From the Diane Ravitch blog: 

 The most reactionary and anti-union of the major foundations–the billionaire Walton Family Foundation–has awarded $20 million to Teach for America to send bright, ill-prepared new college graduates into the nation’s classrooms. The largest contingent –700–will go to Los Angeles. That city has a large number of nonunion charter schools.

TFA aids the Walton ambition to privatize public schools and rid them of union teachers. As such, they are a mainstay of the privatization movement.
Wow, 20 million, I wonder how many employees that could have helped. Please don't think for a second this is abut helping kids. It is about their pathological hatred of unions and workers.
