Title: Teach For America Intervention Report
Description: Teach For America (TFA) is a program that places new teachers in schools in low-income communities. The WWC reviewed the research on teachers trained through TFA and their impacts on the academic achievement of students in grades pre-K-12, and found that TFA teachers have positive effects on mathematics achievement, potentially positive effects on science achievement, and no discernible effects on social studies achievement and English language arts achievement.
