Do you have a creative and critical perspective on Teach For America?

If you are an educator, TFA corps member/alum, researcher, concerned citizen, parent, or student we invite you to create a 2-3 minute video to provide both a creative and critical perspective and/or counternarrative about TFA to further public conversation.

Videos could include your own personal experiences with TFA, interviews with individuals who have experience with TFA, or general critiques of TFA’s influence in public education. However, you have creative flexibility to create any focus on TFA that you think is important for the public to be aware of.

The only guideline is that your short film(s) must be less than four minutes. You may submit as many short films as you wish.

Submissions and release form must be received by the 3rd of February. Upload your unlisted (not private or public) submission to YouTube and email a video link to:

The Truth For America videos will be judged by a cadre of progressive TFA alumni.

Winners will be announced by the 5th of February.

The best will be shown at the Network for Public Education’s national conference in Raleigh, North Carolina – April 16-17.

Please don’t use any screenshots from TFA’s website or other “internal use only” material given TFA’s track record of attempting to deflect substance and limit critique.

Don’t let TFA and their supporters use their millions to control the public narrative. Use your voice to tell the Truth for America. Join our Video Project, and start working on your submission today!

Please print and sign this release.  Email the release to
