CORRECTION: Edison Fresh Start


The paragraph in Fresh Start at Edison High referring to Teach for America is corrected as follows:

But, according to TFA media representative Kerci Marcello Stroud, only 44% of recruits stay in the high-poverty school they are originally placed in once their two-year commitment is up. The rest transfer to wealthier schools (whose students need less support), or “burn out” and leave teaching all together. Correction: Stroud said that 61% stay in teaching, but was not able to say how many of these teachers remain in low-income schools beyond their second year.
