Michelle Rhee’s suggestions for Washington state schools
Rhee puts students first
Clearly she has thought deeply about education in America and truly cares about what’s best for children. Hopefully there’ll be a day when it isn’t regarded as revolutionary that families have the ability to choose where to go to school. Empowering people to make choices and competition has been the key driver in our awesome increase in living standards in the past couple centuries, so that the large majority of people now live in better conditions than nobility in the past.
Though groups like teachers unions may pay a price for empowering people, this will be hugely outweighed by improved educations for children.
