Free read Ò PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ñ Richard Whitmire The Bee Eater Summary ✓ 104 Richard Whitmire ñ 4 Summary The inside story of a maverick reformer with a take no prisoners management style Hailed by Oprah as a warrior woman for our times reviled by teachers unions as the enemy Michelle Rhee outgoing chancellor of Washington DC public schools has become the controversial face of school reform She has appeared on the cover of Time Magazine and is currently featured as a hero in the documentary Waiting for Superman This is the story of her. After seeing Waiting for Superman I had an interest in learning about Michelle Rhee the apparently ultra controversial educational reformer and superstar of DC It wasn t until I was at the Global Leadership Summit and saw her speak that I was compelled to buy this book After sitting and reading it in just the course of a couple of hours I have mixed feelings However I can t rate this book on Rhee but rather on the uality of the textObviously the author shows an extreme bias towards Rhee and her radical policies Even though he in the preface acknowledged that she did in fact have some flaws and oppositions and promised to cover them in Chapter 11 I was disappointed By the time I got to Chapter 11 I was ready for a little change of pace Instead we were offered The good the bad and the ugly style of argument with the good having far information than the bad or the ugly at which time he said Some may claim that and then immediately refute their opinions Believe it or not Mr Whitmire there are likely many people as clear from the picketing and rallying that disagree with Rheeand that s okSomething that I will give to the author is that he is very data oriented apparently like Rhee herself The text wasn t just a bunch of ass kissing if you ll excuse my language but did include a great deal of factual claims and statistic driven information to back them up That s something I can appreciateOn a slightly unrelated note as the teacher of 2nd graders I will say that there is nothing distracting than when a bee flies in through the window during a perfectly calm math lesson Maybe next time it happens I should pull a Crazy Rhee and eat the damned thing

Free read Ò PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ñ Richard Whitmire The Bee Eater Summary ✓ 104 Richard Whitmire ñ 4 Summary Journey from good girl daughter of Korean immigrants to tough minded political game changer When Rhee first arrived in Washington she found a school district that had been so broken for so long that everyone had long since given up The book provides an inside view of the union battles the school closings and contentious community politics that have been the subject of intense public interest and debate along with a rare look at Rhee. Interesting scary and eye opening are some of the adjectives I would use to describe this book Written about the former chancellor of the DC schools it makes one aware of the dire straights these schools were in before Michelle Rhee took over Ms Rhee went in there like gang busters and aggravated teachers administrators parents and stirred up the racialpolitical game Tough and determined to put the kids first she ruffled many feathers in order to achieve what she wanted that of better educating the children of DCMs Rhee was not there to win any popularity contests as she went up against incompetent teachers and administrators and took on the UFT She was determined that the only way to improve DC s horrible two year behind everyone else s scores was by getting rid of the driftwood and hiring teachers and administrators that would get the job done She gave ultimatums to staff and in most cases they had a year to shape up or get out She accepted no excuses and made many enemies among the African American population as they accused her of racism Since most of the teachers and admin staff were African Americans of course it was that these were the people from whose ranks they were let go She was tough She was determined and she did bring up those scores Did anyone really appreciate her efforts It is hard to tell as she was pretty much forced out of her job when the mayor was not reelected Sad that this is and was happening to our kids Making excuses was not a part of Rhee s makeup She demanded the best of all because she only gave her best to the kids It was it seems never done with anything else in mind except making things better for the students Too bad many people in DC did not see that

    Pdf Read [The Bee Eater] Ô Richard Whitmire Interesting read but it was extremely biased toward Whitmire's problematic IMO thesis Update In thinking about itobviously the point of writing a nonfiction book is to support your thesis I think what I meant was that I find his thesis problematic mostly the way it seemed he was arguing that somehow the African American parents in DC were too uninformed to realize that Rhee was right all alongthat they didn't know what t
