Grading Rhee in a user poll
of PostLocal.com readers who took a nonscientific user poll said D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee should get an A for her on-the-job performance, and 13 percent gave her an F. More than 6,600 of you had voted as of 4 p.m. yesterday. This week, Rhee said she is stepping down.
ebundagen1: "There is value in style and tact, which is the primary criticism aimed at Michelle Rhee, but those come a very distant second to attaining the primary objective, even granting that they might be useful in attaining the primary objective."
forgetthis: "I gave her a C. She did some good things, and she honestly did some not-so-good things. She was more of an executive talent to me. I'm not convinced she knows a lot about education per se, but she can get things done."
SCOTSGUARDS: "Whomever we elect as our next president should definitely consider her for secretary of education. She'd be my pick if I was elected president."
mhamil01: "This lady attempted to clean up the corruption and received nothing but grief."
Michael_B: "Rhee has done a fantastic job. I'm sure she will continue to do an excellent job for children someplace in the U.S. She cared enough to do the right thing when by far the easiest thing would be to do nothing and not rock the boat."
adeyste: "A democratic end is never accomplished through autocratic means."
