The New Teacher-ization of Education: Where does it fit into the puzzle of educational justice?

Programs like Teach for America exist in order to fill the so-called teacher shortage. As a collective of new and veteran teachers, we have to ask: Why does the teacher shortage exist in the first place? What makes it difficult to recruit teachers, and what makes it difficult for teachers to stay? What’s the deal with the “new teacher-ization” of education?

At this month’s member meeting, facilitated by members of the New Teacher Underground Working Group, we will be exploring the connections between the issues impacting new teachers and the many-headed hydra of market-driven school reform.

We will generate ideas, tools and resources among new and veteran teachers around these issues.

Working Groups will also meet this week!

Please remember to RSVP to give us an accurate head count for food as well as bring reusable food containers and utensils. Let’s try to be radical in all aspects of our lives!
