Thinking educational reform

Wednesday's article in the Christian Science Monitor, "Is Michelle Rhee the new face of education reform?" spotlights the chancellor of the District of Columbia's Public Schools, lifting up her direct and controversial approach to bringing reform in DC schools. Both the article and the comments that follow it provide great food for thought for those of us who care about education. Is this the type of approach that will ultimately bring the positive changes we desire?
