A Lost Episode: TFA’s Political Strategy and Mafia-style Attacks

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, Dr. T. Jameson Brewer and Dr. Barb Veltri.

Does TFA deploy mafia-style political attacks? We interview Diana Davila, a former Houston board member who was elected for more than a decade of service. We discuss the Board’s vote to ban TFA in Houston and how TFA implements political strategy and punishes policy makers who disagree with their temp agency approach to training teachers and much, much more.
