This weekend in Chicago, there will be a rally protesting the Teach For America organization, comprised of teachers and former Teach for America alumni.

While it'll be the first national assembly aimed at organizing resistance to the organization, it's not the first point of friction between teachers and Teach for America. Is the conflict the same across the nation, and does it exist here in California? 

Professor John Rogers with UCLA's Graduate School of Education and Information Studies joins the show to explain.
