If I am lucky enough to keep a reader or two, please be warned that I will evangelize about a few things. One of those is the evolution of the DC Public School (DCPS) system. Last summer, Mayor Adrian Fenty gained almost full control and appointed Michelle Rhee as the Chancellor. To say that I am a fan of her and her policies would be an understatement. Credit also goes to Mayor Fenty (I pledge a future post just for him) for climbing way out onto the edge of a limb that may or may not hold his weight.
Another topic is the best magazine ever, The Atlantic Monthly. In this month’s issue, these two topics converged. This feature article (no subscription needed for web content) or interview will do a better job than me at introducing you to Michelle. As you can imagine, she makes frequent appearances in the Washington Post. Here is the latest in which, as usual, the DC Council whines and gives her a hard time for not kissing their ass enough.
