This work captures the voices of TFA novices who offer candid accounts of their experiences in becoming Teach For America Teachers. Previously unanswered questions are addressed: Why do recent college graduates apply to Teach For America? How are they recruited, trained, and hired? How do they learn the culture (s) of the community, schools, grade level, curriculum, and children they teach? Is there a qcultureq of the TFA organization? What recommendations do they offer to TFA donors, policy-makers, future corps members and the public? Woven into this book, are perspectives from mentors who worked alongside TFAers, administrators who hired them, corporate C.E.O.'s who supported them, and policies (both local and national) that privileged TFA over non-TFA teachers. Finally, a compelling series of eyewitness narratives introduces each chapter's theme, documented from the author's own, qNotes from the Field.q These accounts offer rich, descriptive vignettes that present the challenges TFAers faced, as they occurred. Schools reflect the multi-tiered and often non-level playing field that comprises America's educational landscape. Learning on Other People's Kids: Becoming a Teach For America Teacher provides readers a glimpse into the corps member experience in a rare ethnographic account.Form 990 (2006) J Current Officers, Directors, Trustees, and Key Employees ( continued) 75a Enter the total number of ... trustees, or key employees listed in Form 990, Part V - A, or highest compensated employees listed in Schedule A, Part I, ...
