The activist organization, United Students Against Sweatshops is misguided in targeting TFA, because while USAS may bring up legitimate concerns, the heart of the issues USAS addresses is systemic and goes beyond TFA itself. Considering the success of Teach for America and the positive change it has made for students, communities and teachers the organization employs, it’s surprising TFA has come under such scrutiny. Organizations like TFA have been proven to strengthen the education programs in underfunded communities through their leadership and training programs. This has got to stop.
