Research Recap: Addressing Teacher Shortages in Disadvantaged Schools
Secondary Math Teachers from Teach For America and the Teaching Fellows Programs
Students assigned to TFA teachers scored higher than those assigned to comparison teachers, with the difference roughly equivalent to an additional 2.6 months of math instruction. Students taught by Teaching Fellows teachers had about the same math scores as peers taught by comparison teachers.
Teach For America/Teaching Fellows and Effective Teaching in Secondary Math
Secondary math teachers from Teach For America are more effective than other math teachers in the same schools; secondary math teachers from Teaching Fellows programs are as effective as, and in some cases more effective than, other math teachers in the same schools.
