Rhee: stepping down!

Embattled D.C. Superintendent, Michelle Rhee, steped down today. And Mayor Adrian Fenty lost the primary last month to the Vincent C. Gray, city council chairperson. Interestingly, Rhee campaigned for the Mayor during his re-election bid ironically in the white section of town.

"There is some notion buried in our educational experiments that we still don’t really know how to teach kids, or that there is some silver bullet waiting to be discovered. We do know how, and there isn’t a magical answer."

"Let’s be honest: we need a lot more well-off, well-educated white folks with a personal stake in both charter schools and education reform in general if we’re going to take reform to the next level, both politically and operationally.Whitney Tilson, hedge fund manager and major funding angel for the school privatizing Democrats for Education Reform, thinks there’s not enough rich, educated white folks.( Preaprez) click photo to his blog.
