Yesterday morning, DC’s chancellor of Public Schools, appeared on ABC’s “This Week” to weigh in on the current state of America’s public education system. During the round table discussion with Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, President of the American Federation of Teachers, Randi Weingarten, and host Christiane Amanpour, Rhee (who joined via satellite from Sacramento) spoke to the revamping of the DC teacher evaluation model, implementing a merit-based compensation system and reforming the way government resources flow into the school districts.

Rhee was, as usual, well spoken and succinct in her contributions to the conversation. It was so refreshing to have a DC voice on a national Sunday morning show. Especially, when it’s one who is willing to take on the tough issues within our school systems.
