Truth For America is a podcast about Teach For America (TFA) that provides voice to educators, parents, students, and other key stakeholders. Truth For America is co-hosted by Dr. Julian Vasquez Heilig and Dr. T. Jameson Brewer.
Episode 19 was LIVE at a California state capitol research forum entitled: Should TFA be banned? The conversation features Dr. Kerry Kretchmar (Carroll University), Dr. Barb Veltri (North Arizona University), Dr. Lori Rhodes (Sonoma State), and Assemblymember Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens). Considering California Assembly Bill 221 (2019), which would ban TFA in low-income schools, the forum explored TFA research and experience. Asm. Garcia talks about her motivations for the bill and researchers discuss and review the research about TFA.
Jameson wasn't able to make the forum because he was snowed in at the Denver airport.
Truth For America is sponsored by the Network for Public Education Action.
