American Morning’s John Roberts talks to controversial education reformer Michelle Rhee about her billion dollar plans to form an advocacy group that she says will “shift the balance of power” in education.
Rhee explains how the group will encourage reform, why politics must be apart of the equation.
Rhee stepped down as chancellor of the District of Columbia Public Schools in October, after three-and-a-half years as head of the troubled school system. She talks with CNN about her work in D.C., where she closed two dozen failing schools, laid off hundreds of teachers, and brought private money into schools.
