Rhee: DC Adults Continue to Hurt Kids
Michelle Rhee, an ed reformer once the darling of the left, is attacking congress and the teachers unions for selling out children. Funny enough, Steve Jobs told the president the same thing a year ago.
Jobs also criticized America's education system, saying it was "crippled by union work rules," noted Isaacson. "Until the teachers' unions were broken, there was almost no hope for education reform." Jobs proposed allowing principals to hire and fire teachers based on merit, that schools stay open until 6 p.m. and that they be open 11 months a year.
