Where Do We Go From Here: Two Proposals to Promote Community Based Education

Proposal Number One

Imagine if an organization recruited our most talented students from high poverty communities, gave them three years of teacher training that included mentoring and work as teaching assistants, and then sent them into high needs school districts with a promise to teach in those districts for at least five years while giving them living allowances if they lived in the same communities they taught in.
That would be a REAL Teach for America as opposed to the Privatize for America organization that operates under that name.

Proposal Number Two

Would we benefit from the creation of an an Education Think Tank, composed of largely of people who live, teach and study in high poverty communities, to develop strategies for what kind of educational programs would best serve residents of those communities without dividing them, forcing them out, or providing opportunities to those who seek to profit or build careers at their expense?.

It could be called "Teach for America, (unincorporated), Really!" And I think that we'd benefit tremendously if the ideas in your second proposal took root--I wish we could start here in Seattle. It would be oh-so-hard to not have folks from the testocracy get in on that think tank, though.
