Subject: [EWA-L] Michelle Rhee and the Missing Memo—which has turned up


Below are the first few paragraphs of what I am posting in a few minutes. The piece runs 4300 words is fully footnoted: 40 footnotes, which appears as hashtags in the excerpt below.
I am also reporting that, after five years of Rhee/Henderson, the DC schools are worse off by almost every conceivable measure: graduation rates, truancy, enrollment, test scores, black-white gap and teacher and principal turnover.
