This is interesting. Teach for America proves that the entire education establishment is full sh*t. Kids out of legitimate liberal arts programs with two weeks of training consistently outperform education school graduates with decades of experience. On the same note, Teach for America alumni are starting charter schools through the “KIPP” program that consistently outperform all traditional public schools serving the same demographics. Ayers and the rest of the socialists no likey any of this.

Teach For America participants are a bunch of "Just Add Water, Instant Teacher" starry eyed idealists raised on libby poison. They are not in the education field as a career, but merely marking time. Whether it's a slow job market or trying to accrue something impressive to put on a law school application, these TFA are just passing through. They don't have the commitment to education and so are ever SO happy to simply follow the latest progressive dogma being spouted that year and follow the latest teaching miracle being touted by local politicians. They haven't a clue about being a colleague or solidarity with them, and thus have no problem running to inform on colleagues to glean brownie points which will result in a better rating, better classes or extra per-session paid jobs.
In short, 99% of them are libby vermin.
