Larry Ferlazzo asked me for a list of links on Michelle Rhee that were not just a “rant” (which is what I wrote). You may have some of your own (add them as a comment), here are mine:
When she first proposed an “alternative” non-tenure contract track, Dan Meyer had a post where the comments showed a schism between younger and older teachers on this issue. Chris Lehmann’s comment outlines in a really succinct way why veteran teachers in urban districts may not embrace such a change.
eduwonkette: Washington, DC Archives will include some non-Rhee articles, but most of the recent posts in this category touch on that topic. Of particular interest will be the case of Art Siebens, a tenured teacher who was not rehired at a reconstituted High School.
The Time magazine article about Michelle Rhee that started the recent round of comments.
The Educational Debate — Tone Matters – Practical Theory: Chris Lehmann, once again with the voice of reason on why Michelle Rhee’s leadership isn’t, including quotes from the Time piece.
