The Wisconsin legislature allocated $1million to pay Teach for America to send 70 we teachers to Wisconsin schools.
It gets tiresome to say this again and again: Teach for America is a wealthy organization that sends ill-trained recruits to teach in under-resourced districts. These poorly trained young people, with no experience as teachers and no commitment to stay beyond two years, are expected to work wonders. They don’t.
Why does TFA charge districts anything? It has $300 million in assets. Is it renting out the kids? Selling them? Auctioning them off?
