Why Is Teach for America Struggling to Recruit?
“We are facing greater-than-normal challenges on the recruitment front,” the executive director of Teach for America-Chicago said. “And here’s what we’re seeing. As of December, we had 20,000 applications for the incoming corps. That’s behind pace from last year. And if this pace continues, we’d fall 25 percent short of what our partners around the country, our school partners around the country, have said they need from us.”
