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 7 was LIVE at the 2016 Network For Public Education Conference held in Raleigh, North Carolina. The episode features a conversation with Dr. Diane Ravitch (historian), Karen Wolfe (Los Angeles parent), Dr. Amber Kim (TFA alum), and Dr. Beth Sondel (TFA alum). The fireside chat includes a discussion about whether a cyber war is being waged against TFA critiques, how communities can influence conversations about TFA, the role of TFA in the privatization of education movement, and the (in)adequacy of TFA’s summer training and pedagogical approaches. Truth For America is sponsored by the Network for Public Education Action.
