The Bee Eater - Michelle Rhee Takes on Nations Worst SD
The Bee Eater chronicles the extraordinary life and work of the dynamic and controversial school reformer Michelle Rhee. While the book reveals Rhee's remarkable accomplishments, it also explores many of the fundamental problems in our current education system, the unpredictable politics of leadership — and her shortcomings. When Michelle Rhee first arrived in Washington, she found a school district that had been so dysfunctional for so long that many had given up. Guided by the principles of outstanding leadership, strict accountability and the power of effective teaching, Rhee was determined to turn around Washington, D.C. schools. Her encounters with community politics, and battles with central office bureaucrats and teachers' unions were so extraordinary that her efforts were featured in Time, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, and a lengthy PBS series. The Bee Eater holds the promise of educational excellence for today's students and for tomorrow's school reformers.
