Abstract: Education in America is a key factor in creating a successful future for African Americans. In particular, government and other institutional authority figures have emphasized educator training as one aspect of the educational system to be improved.
This paper will analyze the Mississippi Teacher Corps in its two main target areas, the Mississippi Delta and Jackson, Mississippi. Section One will discuss the role of an educator in American society. It will also provide cultural and statistical information about the Mississippi Delta and Jackson. Finally, it will explain the overall structures of Teach For America (TFA) and the Mississippi Teacher Corps (MTC), focusing more on the latter.
Section Two will discuss the process of creating and implementing MTC. It will also highlight the research being done about the program from within MTC, and it will discuss the actors and resistance associated with the program.
Section Three will analyze the overall effects of TFA and MTC on heavily African American critical-needs regions. For the purposes of this paper, “critical-needs” districts are those identified by the Mississippi Department of Education as such. In addition, this paper will include the high-poverty inner-city district of Jackson Public Schools as a critical-needs area. Section Three will also argue that alternate routes such as MTC and TFA do, in fact, provide both fully-certified teachers and teachers who are passionate in their desire to see children succeed. The section will end with a discussion of traditional training, TFA, and MTC in the context of predominantly African American areas of Mississippi.
