I’ve had had many concerns about the perspective and actions of Michelle Rhee, the Superintendent of the Washington, D.C. public schools, for quite awhile. Those concerns were only deepened by what I read in the cover story about her in TIME Magazine.
I’ll be writing a more more detailed analysis sometime in the future. For now, though, I’d like to point readers in the direction of the In Practice blog, our group blog written by teachers working in lower-income communities.
Links in that post there will lead you to some thoughtful reflections about Rhee from others whom I respect.
