Michelle Rhee Tells Congress: Pass the DREAM Act

Posted by guest blogger Sean Cavanagh:

Michelle Rhee, the iconic and controversial former District of Columbia school chancellor, is using her platform to speak in favor the DREAM Act, which would give undocumented students a path to citizenship.

See my original post for more details.

Rhee, whose parents were South Korean immigrants, writes in an online essay that Congress should pass the legislation, which has drawn support from Democratic lawmakers but is strongly opposed by many Republicans. "No child should be forced to live in the shadows and hide their identity," writes Rhee, "nor should any teacher or mentor have to cover up the truth."
