One criticism leveled by opponents of the Teach for America (TFA) program is that many TFA teachers quit after their initial, two-year commitment has expired.
Well, that’s apparently not so in Floyd County’s public schools. The Floyd County Times reports that all the TFA teachers in that school system are staying on. It’s great news for the students and the schools. It is also a credit to Floyd County that it moved beyond prejudice to make these well-qualified young teachers feel welcome and appreciated.
