Mark Naison, a co-founder of the Badass Teachers Association (BATS), is America’s Education Gadfly par excellence (that is, assuming that a BAT can also be a gadfly).

NAISON, a professor of African-American studies at Fordham University, knows how to get under the skin of the powerful.

He recently released a sharp video from his very own EduNews, criticizing Teach for America.

TFA—that financial and political powerhouse—promptly responded with a video on its website.

The BATS were delighted that Mark’s video struck a TFA nerve. Now, they are hopeful that TFA might respond to Julian Vasquez Heilig’s review of the evidence about TFA.
