I love what Michelle Rhee stands for. I thank her for her leadership, inspiration, and courage.

Bob Bowdon asks Michell Rhee a pointed question and she responds with a resoundingly clear and powerful statement.   I love her for it!   She is a brave warrior woman!

On Bob’s FB Group page for Choice TV I posted my response to Michelle’s answer to Bob’s question.   I hope I can stomach it in the morning when I’m not exhausted and in much discomfort from this flu I’ve suffered since Sunday.

 

“That was perfect! As a mother of two boys, and a person with the spirit to teach and cause children and people of all ages to learn, in my heart, I loved her answer…”

“Thank you Michelle Rhee. You speak for mothers who care about their children and need to count on the integrity of the school administration and program, that excellent teachers are supported, and ineffective teachers are identified and supported to transform in the areas they are lacking, or supported in choosing a new carreer if it’s not the right path fo them.
