Gary Rubinstein was a member of one of the first cohorts to join Teach for America. He decided to make a career of teaching, unlike most of those who enter TFA. He is now one of its sharpest critics because he knows the organization well.

In this post, he expresses amazement and amusement that TFA is boasting about anew research study that doesn’t reflect well on TFA teachers. Those in the first two years of teaching, where mostvTFA are, don’t do well.

Either TFA didn’t read the report carefully or it just decided to spin the conclusions.

Guy Brandenburg read the same report and concluded that it “crushed” the myth of the TFA Super Teacher.
