I like Michelle Rhee

And apparently the WaPo does, too.

I think she’s done a good job of improving the city’s schools so far, and I hope she gets the chance to keep trying and doesn’t get shut down prematurely. On NPR recently I heard someone say that she has the full support of the mayor and the council (so far) for all of her initiatives, which is exactly how she wanted it. No barriers, and also no excuses. If the initiatives fail, they’ll fail on their merits, not cause of politics. But if they succeed, they’ll show that she was right.I hope that she succeeds, cause the city’s children definitely deserve a good education.
