I got a chance to hear the Washington, DC public school Chancellor Michelle Rhee at the Education Writers Association meeting in Chicago in April 2008. 

She's aggressive and eager to make some dramatic changes in how kids learn in the DC public school system.  And of course, when one tries to make drastic changes, the enemies line up at the door.  Is what she's doing in DC working?

    In order to make changes you most be radical and ruthless with those that are not doing their job. So we no longer have the choise to sit tight and continue to be the have the same education. We need change now not few days down the road but NOW! The future of our children is not waiting for them but if we continue with not doing anything is leaving them behind. So wake up our future is already late!
