Reinvention with Teach for America

Teach for America is known for taking college graduates and placing them in schools as educators to serve the nation’s most vulnerable children. Those corps members in turn often become leaders in helping transform education in the United States. But Teach for America is increasingly paying attention to the education system itself—and acknowledging that it was never built to optimize learning for most students and that therefore it needs to reinvent itself. As a result, it launched its Reinvention Lab with the goal of reinventing learning systems—and perhaps reinventing Teach for America itself in the process. Michele Culver, who leads the Reinvention Lab, joins me in this conversation to detail more what the work looks like and why it matters.
