Tell the Hartford BOE: Vote No on TFA’s Costly Finders Fee

Handing $651,000.00 to TFA over three years as a “finders-fee” for an additional 210 recruits for the district raises additional questions:
  • Why spend tax dollars on a human resources function when parents are crying out for improvements to their neighborhood schools?
  • Why outsource recruiting to TFA instead of partnering with our state’s public colleges and universities?
  • Why import TFA recruits from outside the state when there is no shortage of credentialed teachers right here in Connecticut?
Click here to tell the BOE to invest in Hartford’s neighborhood schools, not outside “head hunters.”
The growing “Hartford Rising” movement has been saying school officials need to listen to parents, communities, and educators before making decisions that impact students and their opportunity to learn. Join them in urging the board vote “NO” to this costly contract.
