Gary Rubinstein has taken upon himself the thankless task of watching what Teach for America is up to.

Recently he has listened to the banal speeches of its CEO, who is spouting the same tired cliches about how terrible the status quo is.

“Zip code,” “status quo,” “great teachers,” blah blah blah.

Hey, it’s a living. TFA has about $400 million in the bank, and they continue to get fat “finder’s fees” for supplying ill-trained tyros to school districts who pledge to stay for two years, although some don’t last that long. Meanwhile, everyone at the top is making six-figure salaries.
