WPC Supporter Breakfast with Michelle Rhee
Members of Washington Policy Center are invited to join us for an exclusive special breakfast event with Michelle Rhee.
From 2007-2010 Michelle was the Chancellor of the Washington, D.C. public schools. Under her leadership, the district and the teachers’ union approved a groundbreaking contract that dramatically reformed how D.C. schools operate. Michelle also streamlined the system’s central office, freeing up more resources to go to classrooms. In 2010, Michelle launched StudentsFirst, a bipartisan grassroots movement of more than 2 million members nationwide, working to focus our education system on what’s best for students. Michelle’s book, Radical: Fighting to Put Students First, was published in 2014 with the goal of ensuring that laws, leaders, and policies are making students—not adults—our top priority in education reform, outlining concrete steps that will put us on a dramatically different course. Join us on February 14th to hear about her experience with education reform in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere and her ideas for education reform today.
