All stakeholders in the Pittsburgh schools received a marvelous holiday gift, when their school board made an enlightened decision.
Instead of wasting valuable dollars on TFA, the district will maintain an elementary school that was slated for shutdown.
As a longtime opponent of Teach for America
, I couldn’t be happier to see school board members realize what a horrible mistake they made in handing over a huge contract to a group of people who know so little about education.
Well done, Pittsburgh Schools. Merry Christmas.
