NY State State Test ELA Used for Teach For America Propaganda

WOW! Wendy makes the ELA exam. This one by A Voice in the Wilderness at The Chancellor's New Clothes even surprised Susan Ohanian, the expert on outrages.

Here's a question for the next ELA:
TFA is a tool:
A. to bust teacher unions
B. to create divisions between newer and senior teachers
C. to promote the coporate agenda in schools
D. all of the above

  1. Right, when Wendy Kopp was writing her senior thesis at Princeton, I'm sure she had all of these aims in mind. It's astounding to me that you can take a program that pretty much all of the rational world likes and concoct some wild-eyed conspiracy theory and feel comfortable publishing it despite zero evidence of its veracity. Who was it that came up with the idea of the big lie again?

  2. I had to read that passage...It was disgusting. Celebrating inexperience...Shameful.
