Ed Next Book Club: Richard Whitmire’s The Bee Eater
Check out the first ever Education Next Book Club Podcast!
Perhaps the most polarizing person in American education today is Michelle Rhee, the hard-charging former chancellor of the District of Columbia public schools. She’s the subject of a new book by Richard Whitmire called The Bee Eater. In this podcast, Mike Petrilli talks with Richard about Michelle’s upbringing, the reforms she brought to Washington, her successes, and the racial politics that led to her downfall.
