Michelle Rhee--Candid About The Challenges of DC Schools

Eduwonk has the video.

The steps she must take are to a certain extent mind-boggling. At about 6:30 left in teh first video Rhee talks about her effort to get authority to fire incompentent people and being met with the argument that once fired, the employee may not be able to get another job. That is the mindset of DC schools and their patrons, that employement with teh schools is some sort of sinecure.
