No matter who wins, DC Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee ought to be offered a position in the US Department of Education. With Obama giving her a nod in this debate, and McCain being a clear advocate for education reform, I wager she will be.
Whether or not she would accept is another question. When asked in a recent press conference if she would leave DC’s school system for a cabinet position, Rhee noted how important continuity of leadership was for the DC school district.
Keep your eyes on this rising star.
