At about the same time Michelle Rhee, resident of our fair city of Sacramento, gave California education policies an “F,” a report based on actual research and focused on how students are doing in the classroom was published with the title “California’s K-12 Public Schools: Great Results With Diminishing Resources.”

No wonder our state’s deputy superintendent of instruction said:

…that the state’s F rating is a “badge of honor.” “This is an organization that frankly makes its living by asserting that schools are failing,” Zeiger said of StudentsFirst. “I would have been surprised if we had got anything else.”

You can read more about Rhee’s grading system here. And you can read about a report card given to Rhee by a New York school’s group here.

I’ve previously shared my perspective on Rhee in The Washington Post.
