Michelle Rhee embraces disgraced charter school advocate

Not surprising, but interesting maybe...

Quote
Tony Bennett, Florida’s education chief, abruptly resigned yesterday after an AP investigation revealed that in his old job running Indiana’s schools, he frantically overhauled the state’s evaluation system to avoid giving a poor grade to a charter school run by a prominent Republican donor. In addition to his charter school advocacy, Bennett was also known for his staunch support of standardized testing.

PUBLIC Health
PUBLIC Education
PUBLIC Transportation

They are replacing Public schools with Charters.
Charter schools which soon, if not now, will be the back room of the corner store

Here's an interesting quote from the comments section of that article Vic Vega posted:

"Michelle Rhee is like a character straight out of "The Wire."  If you juke the stats to make your superiors look good, you'll get promoted higher and higher up the chain.  Meanwhile, teachers and students get screwed over and the whole system slides farther and farther into decline. 

She's like a real life Ervin Burrell and Bill Rawls."

Rhee, the wanton liar and fraud is much worse.

Children are sacred. To take advantage of the most vulnerable in any society shows a level of callousness and immorality that should frighten any normal individual. Rhee has used the welfare of millions of children in public education as a means to further enrich millionaires/billionaires at those children's expense.

Burrell and Rawls were snakes in a pit who knew how to navigate against other serpents. They never stooped as low as to take advantage of the innocent.
