Michelle Rhee On YouTube 

As Vicky points out, we now know what Michelle Rhee has been doing. She has been speaking to a partisan political group about her plans to terminate everyone in DCPS (except, of course, for the fourteen people and counting she has brought to the system) while ignoring the collective bargaining agreement that governs employee relations. See you in court.

Watch the video here. It appears that the Democrats for Education Reform were videotaping the talk without telling Miss Rhee. I would love to be a part of this group.

While I like her willingness to tear apart her bureaucracy and her compliment to the KIPP Academy, I fear that her talk about getting rid of people is not a good management technique because it just ignites a fire in those who oppose what she is trying to accomplish. And before you speak about taking people's jobs away maybe you should conduct some analysis to see what exactly needs to be done.

Washington Examiner coverage of the speech here.
