Rhee the Reformer: A Cautionary Tale

A brilliant piece of work from Sabrina at Failing Schools as Dr. Seuss does in Michelle Rhee.
by Sabrina
A ton of smart people have already written a lot of smart critiques of “Erase to the Top”– otherwise known as the unfolding story about testing “irregularities” in the DC Public Schools under then-chancellor Michelle Rhee. (RheeFirst has a collection of all the coverage here.) So I won’t do a whole big prose-y deal today– it’s been done. However, as far as I can tell, I am the first to tell this story in the style of Dr. Seuss. Enjoy
