The New York Times reports today about construction of new apartments in Philadelphia, meant specifically for teachers. The development is made possible by state and federal tax credits.

But not for any teacher. Not for the teachers who live in the community. Not for veteran teachers who have put their hearts into the community schools for 10-20 years. They already have a place to live.

No, these are below-market apartments built for Teach for America recruits, those great kids with five weeks of training who plan to leave after two years.

The project will set aside office space for TFA along with a gym and coffee shop. That way, the kids may not burn out so fast.

There is a similar project for TFA in Baltimore and Newark.
