    Pros

    Looks great on resume. An awesome opportunity for community service and to work towards solving the national crisis that is the achievement gap. Teach for America will make you a better, more hardworking person.

    Cons

    Requires a lot of perpetual, self-motivation. Takes a lot to be consistent and to decide not to give up. You might not have enough support at your school and you will frequently question your effectiveness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that all corps members are as supported as possible in their schools.
