dc.description.abstractThe last several decades have seen significant growth among private options in alternative teacher education and certification. In this article, I draw on two parallel ethnographic studies of the experiences of participants in variants of one particular alternative teacher education model, developed by Teach For America in the United States and spread internationally by Teach For All. Through analysis of interviews with recruits from Teach For America and its Brazilian sister organization Ensina!, I explore the thinking processes that lead young people to join these organizations, as well as how that thinking changes after two years of teaching in the classroom. I find that while participants join because they admire the Teach For All teacher education model, many leave their two-year commitment questioning the underlying theories of change driving it.en_US
