who is the real michelle rhee?

The Washington Post has an interesting article on Michelle Rhee, Chancellor of D.C. public school system: In Search of The Real Michelle Rhee.

With a lot of high-profile attention on her since she took the post (including landing the cover of TIME), Rhee's public image has been of a tough-talking schools chief who's out to sack every last veteran teacher in D.C.'s failing system. This article suggests that the reality is something entirely different, and not quite so simple.

The article is accompanied by a video on the chancellor, talking about leadership: On Leadership: Michelle Rhee on "Extreme Candor." She'll also be doing a live chat on Tuesday, September 29 to take questions and comments: D.C. Schools Chief Michelle Rhee.
