kilgallinfred: You want to talk real reform, let's talk about delivering content in what we now know as brain-friendly ways; let's talk about grouping by ability and learning styles rather than strictly age; let's talk about home involvement that includes parental reading habits and accountability for other domestic issues; let's talk about dealing in a straightforward way with poverty.

jl09: Ms. Rhee and Adrian Fenty were visionaries and doers with best intentions for the betterment of the students.

kerryberger: A fresh approach to raising education standards was necessary, and unfortunately in our society, with a short-term mentality, we don't give programs time enough to prove their effectiveness. The victims are a generation of children who only know a world of inconsistency. And we wonder why standards drop?

hotezzy: Rhee should be involved in the day-to -day operations of school systems so that she will thoroughly understand the system as it really operates, not just her theoretical educational systems.

xxx1: At least she was willing to try.

ahang: I don't think pushing gobs of money around to get candidates elected that favor school reform is going to change much. Everyone favors improving schools and education - have you heard of a politician opposing school reform?

dcpsinsider: I was a Rhee supporter when she came to D.C., and I still think her innermost intentions are sincere. However, she is not realistic and needs more classroom experience.
