Michelle Rhee on Arne Duncan

Another education reformer, who has graced magazine covers, is on NPR's Diane Rehm show now. Listen to the conversation with Washington D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee here.

Here's what Rhee had to say when Rehm asked her about the choice of Arne Duncan as education secretary:

One of the biggest advantages to a Mr. Duncan being the new secretary is the fact that he has been an urban superintendent for many years now...so he understands firsthand the challenges we face in running school districts, some of the tweaks that need to be made with No Child Left Behind, etcetera. So from that vantage point, because he has that experience coming in, he is going to run that department in a way that will have, you know, good positive ramifications on the ground level, at the school level.
