Michelle Rhee fired 100 out of about 750 cental office DCPS workers yesterday. From the story by Dion Haynes and Yolanda Woodlee of the Washington Post:
The fired worker said he thought that the central office had become a "toxic" environment since Rhee announced the job action late last year...Some of the fired workers said they thought they had been treated unfairly since Rhee arrived. They said that she regarded all central office workers as though they were incompetent, even if she didn't know them, and that when she walked past them, she would not say hello or look them in the face.Great management skills.
