The woman who broke ‘code of silence’ in D.C. schools

A documentary on Michelle Rhee that was broadcast on PBS' Frontline this week delved into allegations of standardized test cheating during her tenure as D.C. schools chancellor. Rhee downplayed the allegations and D.C. Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson called the allegations “fictitious.” and pointed to a series of investigations that have yielded no evidence of large-scale cheating. Critics say the probes were too narrow. Journalist John Merrow, who was the force behind the documentary, provides more information here about the former D.C. principal who complained about cheating.
