Michelle Rhee and Her 'Teacher Town Hall'

Hosted by  • 

Michelle Rhee -- one of the nation's most controversial figures when it comes to education reform -- is in Los Angeles tonight.  There's still dispute about her record as chancellor of public schools in Washington, DC, where she closed 23 schools, fired 36 principals and 241 teachers, negotiating pay raises only after teachers agreed to limit seniority protections and tenure. She stopped by the studios of KCRW this afternoon before heading for a Teacher Town Hall at the LA Central Library, one of three such events around the country planned by her group, Students First.
