Rhee, M. (2010, Dec. 6) What I’ve Learned. Newsweek.

Excerpts from the Newsweek article

State of education is still bad..image

Rhee notes that “there is no big organized interest group that defends and promotes the interests of children,” which is also something that I heard Scott Oki say in a talk he gave at MIcrosoft (and I guess is also in his book).  I wonder if she is getting some help from Oki on her new venture http://www.StudentsFirst.org?

“So many great teachers in this country are frustrated with the schools they are working in, the bureaucratic rules that bind them, and the hostility to excellence that pervades our education system.”

“Education reform is the civil rights movement of this generation,” says Duncan.  “Game on” says Rhee.
