Parent Power Indianapolis has published a commentary about the negative ramifications to Indianapolis Public Schools if interim superintendent Aleesia Johnson becomes the school district’s leader.

They’ve connected the dots among Indianapolis’ Teach for America alumni (Indianapolis Public Schools interim leader Aleesia Johnson, the Mind Trust’s Brandon Brown, four of Hogsett’s Office of Education Innovation workers, and Enroll Indy’s Caitlin Hannon) who are close to reaching Teach for America’s goal of controlling public education in Indianapolis.

Aleesia Johnson and other persons in important positions in Indianapolis’ education scene are Teach for America graduates. The analysis by Parent Power Indianapolis shows that the Teach for America program encourages participants to become involved in educational politics after just two years in the classroom. Programs like Teach for All and the Global Educational Reform Movement (GERM) have spread Teach for America’s corporate reform/privatization ideology around the world. Parents need to know this.
