Still Teaching for America
Summer 2013 | Education Next

Teach for America has notified its partner districts that it is on track to train a smaller corps of teachers this year, possibly falling short of demand for its teachers by 25 percent.  TFA believes that recruitment is down because the economy is stronger (and prospective TFA teachers have more options) and because of “an increasingly polarized public conversation around education.”

June Kronholz took a close look at Teach for America in the summer of 2013 as it celebrated its 25th birthday and went through a leadership transition in “Still Teaching for America.”
