Theola Labbe's articles in the Washington Post are unique. What I have figured out after blogging about almost all of them is that she includes an interesting fact that is meant to draw the reader away from the main topic she is writing about to something controversial that she learned while researching the piece. Today there is a great example of this. While it appears she is reporting on the young people that new School Chancellor Rhee is gathering together to run DCPS, later in the story you find that Rhee's group is operating in parallel to Superintendent Janey's staff. Apparently the Janey staff are doing the day-to-day work while the Rhee group are there to fix problems. Sounds like there's going to be an explosion on North Capitol Street.
