This is the inside story of the more than 8,000 recent college graduates who have joinedTeach for Americaand committed two years of service to teaching in the nations most troubled public schools. These inexperienced teachers come to class armed with little more than their idealism and the conviction that every student, regardless of race or background, deserves an excellent education. They take the toughest jobs at the toughest schools in the toughest districts, and they face the raw realities of Americas public education system: dilapidated schools, too few books, and overcrowded classrooms. Written in the tradition of Studs Terkel,Lessons to Learnshowcases the insights of a wide range of individuals with real life expertise, combining interviews and essays from TFA corps members and alumni as well as principals, superintendents, parents, and noted education experts. Current and former TFA members reflect on their teaching sucesses and failures, the life lessons they gathered alongthe way, and their insights about the challenges facing out nations public schools. Education professionals and other experts help establish the broader context of the fight for meaningful public education reform. Lessons to Learnis essential reading for teaching, parents, policy makers, and anyone who cares about the fate of this nations struggling public education system.
