Teach For America Chicago-Northwest Indiana’s learning series, known as “Breakdown,” is intended to support members with the knowledge, understanding, and network of leaders to deeply grasp the problems facing our educational landscape and develop an informed theory of what it will take to reach One Day.

We host free conversations to expose members of the TFA network to the challenges, big ideas, and network of thought-leaders that are shaping Chicago and Northwest Indiana’s education landscape.
