There’s a great article in the latest Newsweek about TFA and the problem of attracting and retaining the best teachers. As I said in my post about what policymakers ought to know, our schools of education need attention. Unfortunately, they don’t manage to attract the best and the brightest.
(Last year Wonder Woman — our great master teacher, now gone on to better, more hopeful schools — found out where I went to college. “What are you doing here?” she asked, confounded.)
Anyway, the article is worth reading.
