Since its inception, Teach For America has both received accolades and critiques its methods of preparing future teachers. In Teach For Whose America, Beth Sondel provides a textured description of how the market-based reforms with which Teach For America participates really translate into school culture and classroom practice. Drawing on five months of ethnographic data collected in two "No Excuse" charter schools, Sondel looks beyond the test scores and into schools and classrooms to critique the capacity for market-based reform to fulfill the multiple democratic purposes of public education.
