Teach for America's push into the political side of education

 Teach for America: Elite corps or costing older teachers jobs?

"TFA alumni Nathan Carlberg, who for two years has taught alongside Turk at Cherry Hill, agrees. He says TFA's push "into the political side of education" could make a huge difference.

"Once we get people who have experienced and gone through TFA as union heads and secretaries of education and presidents of school boards," Carlberg says, "then we will see the large systemic change that is needed in this system."
