In Baltimore, proof that school reform can be collaborative and effective
from The Washington Post (commentary)
Michelle A. Rhee vs. Randi Weingarten. Heroic schools reformer vs. obstructionist union boss. In much of the media and the public mind, the national debate over education has been oversimplified into a grudge match between those two strong-willed women. It's not the whole story, and it's self-defeating to think it is. That black-and-white caricature about the choices in education — recently highlighted in the celebrated documentary, Waiting for Superman, and on Oprah Winfrey's television show — confuses and undermines the discussion of how to fix urban schools.
