'Nancy Bailey expresses her astonishment that corporations and universities continue to fund TFA even though there is no evidence for its efficacy. By sending inexperienced teachers to replace veteran teachers, they are harming children and degrading the profession.

Do they know that sooner or later there will be no more real, qualified teachers to instruct their students?Are they not aware that fast-track trained beginners, who focus on data, digital instruction, and classroom control, and who are never intent on becoming teachers until they recruited, are not the best individuals to lead a classroom?'
