Travis Manning portraitTravis Manning, a local teacher in Caldwell, wrote an interesting OpEd piece in the Press Tribine critical of TFA’s 50 million dollar profit margin, all the awhile claiming to be an altruistic nonprofit entity.

Said Manning,

Dayton noted TFA’s $50 million profit margin in 2011 and wondered why it would need state assistance (read: corporate welfare) to fund teachers.
