Talks between Michelle Rhee & George Parker

20 Sep

What’s old is new again: I found this wonderful timeline of the teachers’ contract discussions that have taken place in D.C. over the past few years between the Chancellor, and George Parker, the leader of the Washington Teacher’s Union.

Parker had come under fire by union members who say he is not advocating on their behalf. In a 2008 interview with Charlie Rose, Rhee indicated that Parker was really committed to change and that without him as union leader her changes to the education system in D.C. would not be possible.
