300 Plus TFA Teachers For CPS

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,

Chicago recently

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.
