Michelle Rhee a new memoir ...

Michelle Rhee will soon be publishing her memoir, "Radical, Fighting to Keep Children First,"

Michelle Rhee still continues to pimp herself out as an advocate for education reform and children.

Rhee doesn't disappear or go away always manages to stay in the limelight of the public education circuit.

And she is started her career teaching in an inner city public school through Teach for America in the nineties where she admitted taping shut the mouths of her elementary classroom students to keep them quiet in the hallway.

After a stint running a program to recruit teachers, she was recruited to run the Washington DC Public School System appointed  chancellor from 2007-2010, until she had to step down when voters elected a new mayor.

Her tenure was laden with controversy, especially the allegations high  test scores in several DC schools were the result of tampering through erasing, a topic of a special Frontline TV program Tuesday.

The Answer Sheet columnist wrote, "the “Frontline” film, by education reporter John Merrow, examines Rhee’s record in the District, where her aggressive reforms between 2007 and 2010 turned her from a relative unknown into a polarizing edu-celebrity, both applauded and criticized for her unapologetic approach to fixing the District’s long-troubled schools. "

Today, she presides as a lobbyist for  the Children First organization she created.

Now, she wrote a memoir touting herself as a radical fighting for children when it's all about fighting for herself looking for that next opportunity to continue reaping profits on the pubic education circuit.
