Nancy Bailey: TFA is Undermining the Teaching Profession Yet Collects Hundreds of Millions in Corporate Gifts

Diane Ravitch's blog

Nancy Bailey expresses her astonishment that corporations and universities continue to fund TFA even though there is no evidence for its efficacy. By sending inexperienced teacher aides to replace veteran teachers, they are harming children and degrading the profession.

Open her post to see the long list of gold plated donors. Would they also fund Airline Pilots for America? No, that matters. Why ruin education by demeaning real teachers? Bailey proposes a name change: Teaching Aides for America.

The reality is that TFA supplies the temp labor force for non-union schools, specifically, charter schools.
