What Ron Hillyer could teach Michelle Rhee
By Marian Fox,
Regarding the Sept. 3 front-page article “Famous in the halls of Janney Elementary”:
I came to know custodian Ron Hillyer when my son attended Tenleytown’s Janney Elementary School. We bonded over our mutual interest in the movie “Glory,” and he shared with me mementos of his time as an extra on the set. On several occasions, when I planned to meet my son at school, he knew to find me in Mr. Hillyer’s office. D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee would do well to listen to Mr. Hillyer’s ideas for school reform — his dedication, sensitivity and experience are an inspiring combination that sometimes seems undervalued by our schools chancellor. And he could certainly show her how to properly wield a broom.
