I regret that I don't have time for a detailed response.
A couple of quick points. With the Americorps money TFA teachers are actually receiving more compensation that their equivalents.
Being bright and motivated does not necessarily equate to being effective.
And if the need is to get more qualified teachers into the schools, I would think taking the money TFA is burning through for overhead and applying it as supplementary salaries for experienced teachers willing to into hard to staff schools for at least 3-4 years would be a far more effective expenditure.
