This item by Alex Pareene from Salon.com describes the "Frontline" episode airing on PBS which goes deeper into the history of Michelle Rhee's tenure as the head of the school system in Washington DC. From the looks of this article, the episode won't be a glossy "Waiting for Superman" type of hype piece.
"Frontline" examines the face of "education reform" and the cheating she refused to investigate in Washington
Do you think the documentary will change anyone’s opinion of Rhee?
I don’t think people know how strongly she resisted the investigation of the erasures. That might give some people pause. In Atlanta, the lead investigator told me that they considered three or more standard deviations from the norm to be a strong indication that cheating took place. In the district, there were classrooms that were five, six, seven deviations from the norm. That’s staggering. This is of course the evidence that was presented to Michelle Rhee.
