Gandhi calls teacher deal not acceptable
D.C. Chief Financial Officer Natwar M. Gandhi has told D.C. officials that he will not approve a proposed teacher contract unless Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee finds public funds, rather than private donations, to fund raises, said a top D.C. official with detailed knowledge of the issue.
The official, who insisted on anonymity because deliberations between Gandhi and Rhee are ongoing, said Gandhi’s legal staff had determined that the conditions placed on the $64.5 million grant from four foundations are not acceptable. Those conditions include the right to withdraw the grants if Rhee leaves her position.
