Freedman On Badger PCVs

NYT’s Freedman looks at the tradition of Peace Corps volunteerism at the University of Wisconsin.

Knee jerk criticism: This is no good though, they only serve two years!* Oh wait, never mind, that’s the knee jerk (and not accurate) criticism of Teach For America…

*To be clear, this is a joke. The Eduwife is a returned PCV (Kyrgyzstan ’97-99). It’s an outstanding program (one former ambassador once told Eduwonk that he thought it was the most valuable thing the United States spends money on foreign policywise simply because of the local relationship building).
