Relentless Pursuit

Donna Foote

Book Review

Donna Foote's book Relentless Pursuit: A Year in the Trenches with Teach for America describes the controversial teacher program, following five of its young college graduates who immediately out of college and just after a short training stint, are teaching for the first time, and in failing inner city schools.

This is a vivid and sympathetic picture of the difficulties of teaching and the dedication of our teachers, who make a difference in the lives of our children, whether or not you think Teach for America is an answer to the US educational challenges.

Compelling reading.
