D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee keeps getting play on major national television shows (Larry King Live Tuesday night, Meet the Press this weekend, Oprah last week), yet nobody is bringing up the fact that she has done real damage to D.C. public schools by shifting resources away from the schools in need to the already high-achieving schools.

I interviewed Rhee Friday, September 10th at Union Station and I’d love for folks to hear the interview and her exchange with award-winning DCPS teacher Chris Bergfalk. After interviewing Rhee, I asked Chris, who is a candidate for president of the Washington Teachers’ Union, for his response to Rhee’s comments.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
