Former Washington, D.C. schools chancellor Michelle Rhee has brought her "no excuses" brand of education reform to Northern California. Rhee founded the nonprofit organization StudentsFirst last year, and has based it in her new home in Sacramento. In this new role, Rhee continues to doggedly promote policies -- like merit pay and accountability through test scores -- that made her a controversial figure in her old job.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Michelle Rhee, founder and CEO of StudentsFirst, former chancellor of Washington, D.C. public schools and founder of The New Teacher Project
