Few of us attended one of Michelle Rhee’s “teacher town hall” meetings in Los Angeles, Birmingham, and Philadelphia. Fortunately, the meeting in Los Angeles was videotaped and released.

Gary Rubinstein, ex-TFA and current math teacher at Stuyvesant High School, watched the videotape closely and analyzed the exchanges. He shows how carefully stage-managed the event was, and his commentary is both sharp and fair.

The one bright shining moment in the “town hall” occurred near the end, when a young student stood up and broke all the rules. She spoke for two minutes, she didn’t get cut off, she had her say.

Gary’s analysis is priceless. Please read it.
