I don't get why SFUSD is proposing spending $30,000 buying ten Teach for Americans for the next school year. SFUSD is a popular district; it maintains an active job pool and has plenty of fully credentialed candidates who don't get hired. Why pay TFA to do what the district has already done itself?
Moreover, the district is anticipating TFA providing some Special Education candidates. Since I read ALL the board agendas, I know that many probationary Special Education teachers were removed without cause this year. I don't think the answer is to replace them with entirely uncredentialed if well-meaning candidates, especially candidates who the state of California is unwilling to consider "highly qualified" no matter what the feds say. Moreover, these candidates are also for hard to staff schools. Hard to staff schools generally have a lot of English Language Learners. The state is at present also unwilling to unleash alternatively credentialed-ish teachers on ELLs. So where are these expensive recruits going to work?
Not to mention, sending two-year missionaries to "hard to staff" schools is unlikely to make these schools easier to staff in the future - unless you anticipate a never-ending chain of Teach for Americans, each link lasting two years. Not that that means easier staffing, exactly, or ensures that students have trained, able educators who have been there long enough to build relationships with them, of course.
Additionally, there is an its/it's typo in the reso, and I strongly believe that such errors demand not only correction but utter destruction and contempt for the reso in question.
