Michelle Rhee invites reporters to film her as she fires a principal.
Unbelievable. She reminds me of a 16-year-old pretending to be tough and competent. It's like she's mouthing buzzwords for the camera. Completely phony.
An old story, but a reminder of the kind of person Michelle Rhee is.
Always, she preens for the cameras. Early in her chancellorship, she was trailed for a story by the education correspondent of PBS NewsHour, John Merrow.
At one point, Ms. Rhee asked if his crew wanted to watch her fire a principal. We were totally stunned, Mr. Merrow said.
She let them set up the camera behind the principal and videotape the entire firing. The principal seemed dazed, said Mr. Merrow. Ive been reporting 35 years and never seen anything like it.
she had WAY too many fans on DU before being outed as a huckster fraud...
Anna Philips breaks news that the former schools chancellors from New York and Washington, Joel Klein and Michelle Rhee, have formed a group in New York to counteract the U.F.T.'s role in the mayor's race. The group is being led by Micah Lasher, who is leaving his job as Bloomberg's director of state legislative affairs.
she isn't as "untouchable" as she was when that movie and the magazine covers were everywhere...
When corporate money is financing one's work, they still get work even after their credibility has gone.
She just might get a job on the Romney campaign, though.
This woman is a predator and a grifter.
