Teach for America Gets a J.Crew Tee

J.Crew, a most popular brand among young professionals, is now selling a t-shirt in support of the nonprofit—and controversial—teacher-placement program, Teach for America. The graphic is the result of an in-house design contest at J.Crew. According to the company's site, 100 percent of the profits from the shirt, which runs $32.50, will be donated to TFA.

Wendy Kopp, CEO and founder of TFA, is pretty darn excited about the shirt. Not surprisingly, Diane Ravitch isn't buying it.
