CPS is holding an event later today at Gage Park HS to announce that the district is getting more TFA teachers than ever.
From CPS: "A total of 330 Teach For America corps members will teach in Chicago public schools in
the 2008-09 school year. This incoming Chicago
corps represents a 38 percent increase over last year’s incoming class. Additionally,
was named Teach For America’s seventh corps member training institute site."
Those of you interested in TFA might want to check out a post of mine from the other blog earlier this week, based on a conversation I had with TFA national folks about the strengths and limits of their teacher training and support program: How TFA Thinks About Supporting New Teachers.
