This article is a couple years old, but its worth reading. A year in the life of a new DC public school teacher at Emery Elementary School.

UPDATE: To answer the anonymous commenter in the comment section:
This article is very old news.
Which is why I pointed out it was a couple of years old.
Why bring it up now?
Because it was one teachers experience with TFA and DCPS and, from following the District's public school system for a few years, I suspect that it (unfortunately) still reflects the norm for certain DCPS schools.
How is it relevant?
Well, interestingly enough a new study has just been released that reflect some of the exact same issues the author wrote about.
