To those that would suggest we combine our efforts to make a better TFA, I’d like to stop you there. A better TFA is not possible. And we are not working towards the same goals. The basic premise is in and of itself deeply problematic. Why would I want to spend time and energy restructuring a poorly imagined poorly operated organization that is entrenched in white saviorism and is currently at the forefront of the privatization of education? Why on earth would I want to do that? Tear. It. Down. No amount of good intention can make up for the damage TFA is doing to the public education system.
