A Future Worthy of Teaching for America
Darling-Hammond, Linda
Phi Delta Kappan, v89 n10 p730-733 Jun 2008
In her article, Megan Hopkins offered that teaching residency can allow Teacher for America (TFA) to capitalize on its existing strengths and contribute more effectively to a better future for both low-income students and the schools that serve them. In this article, the author agrees with Hopkins' vision and asserts that the teaching residency may be one of the most important reforms of teacher education. If TFA were to adopt this model, the author contends that it could help address the teacher-quality problems in urban schools. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
