Written into the ESEA Waiver is language that in 2016-2017, personnel decisions have to be based on the state's teacher evaluations. In the meantime Skandera has awarded an RFP to TEACH FOR AMERICA to recruit, train, and place teachers! This is one reason why Martinez wants to raise salaries for level one teachers; to recruit 20 somethings for TFA. These TFA "corp members" teach for 2-3 years, then go into their true profession. This ensures there are always slots to be filled by other TFA so the company is guaranteed a continous contract eith the state.
