Michelle Rhee

DCPS Chancellor Michelle Rhee is such a polarizing figure that yesterday, some voters seemed to be voting either for or against her, rather than for Vince Gray or Adrian Fenty. After Fenty’s loss, Rhee has been on a lot of D.C. minds. Will she stay under Gray? Or will she move on?

Using a nifty tool called Storify, I gathered tweets about Rhee and nestled them in this neat little box:

Two hours ago, there was an erroneous rumor that Rhee had resigned via email, but TBD just published a post titled, “Michelle Rhee has not quit“, so I’m inclined to believe them, instead.
