TFA, Alternative Programs Marginally Better Than Traditional Teacher Prep, Study Finds


The study aims to put to rest a long-held debate about whether alternative route teacher training programs, which tend to provide a quick path to the classroom for people who already have a bachelor's degree, can sufficiently prepare new educators. About 20 percent of new teachers enter through alternative programs, according to a 2016 report from the Education Commission of the States. (Education Week, Nov. 28)
