DC Chancellor to shutter more schools

A protege of former DC Chancellor Michelle Rhee, she took over the DC schools after Rhee stepped down, Kaya Henderson Chancellor is closing more schools, 23, amid community protests.
Kaya obtained most of her early  training in public education in Teach for America and The New Teacher Project Rhee founded to recruit and train teachers for public schools.
DC has become a leader in the charter school movement and schools closed in previous years benefited it, especially after a law passed for charters to take over closed school buildings.
