Michelle Rhee Sets the Record Straight

Michelle Rhee had a piece in today's Washington Post called "The Toughest Job," attempting to clear her rep as a teacher-hater. She does a nice job clarifying her deep respect for D.C.'s teachers and outlining her plan to transform the way teacher's are paid and tenured. Speaking as someone who spent a fair amount of time cleaning powdered sugar (!) out of my closet and off my floor, I have to say Rhee's piece is nothing if not aptly titled. In seriousness though, Rhee's column is a must-read for anyone curious about the direction of education reform in the country, especially reform centered around teacher performance and pay.
