Newspaper Notes Rhee's Frequent Trips to Sacramento, Ties to Kevin Johnson

In November, the D.C. Wire reported that School Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee was a member of the transition team for newly elected Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson.

Over the weekend, the Sacramento Bee published a story about Rhee's frequent trips to Sacramento.

Here's a comment from a Sacramento guy. Sound familiar? By the way, where are the "leave slips" for her "vacation?"

Funny how the knife of the hype machine cuts both ways. Michelle Rhee is painted as some sort of female Jesus school marm who has single handedly 'reformed' DC schools. There's another side to the story, which, in the Bee's willingness to bend over and brownnose Johnson and his largely Republican supporters, seems largely ignored. The 'reform' organizations that Rhee and Johnson front for have very little to do with 'reform' at all, but are rather merely union busting thugs bent on imposing corporate discipline (interesting phrase, given the recent financial abyss) against the last vestiges of front-line teacher collective bargaining, which has sent all measures of school success in DC down the tubes, and why St. Hope's enrollment is in decline, and beyond broke. They present a shiny false theory to corporate benefactors at the expense of teachers and students. She's a liar and a fraud, much like Johnson himself, and time and truth will expose the drek of this story.

And this is the man who flew across the country to recommend her and the man she tried to give business to in order to "rheeform" a few DC high schools. Hmmm
