• Pittsburgh Public Schools' board votes in favor of Teach for America program

    PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Public Schools’ board voted in favor of the Teach for America program on Tuesday night.

    Despite a protest, the board voted in favor of a program that places college graduates in classrooms.

    “What they're going to do is they're going to bring teachers, outsiders, into Pittsburgh, where we already have qualified and educated people,” said protester Dolores Sands.

    Opponents asked the board to delay the vote until the new school board takes over in a few weeks.

    According to our partners at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the board voted to hire up to 30 recruits from Teach for America.
