In her post-D.C. Public Schools career, former Chancellor Michelle Rhee has had no trouble whatsoever attracting attention to her new education reform ventures. And she’s been getting the most attention from prominent elected Republicans.
Since leaving DCPS, Rhee has joined the transition team of new Florida Gov. Rick Scott (pictured) and has since agreed to continue on as an “informal adviser” to his administration. On Tuesday, she appeared at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s State of the State address.
“No one in America has been more clear that we must change our public education system,” Christie said from the podium. “Michelle, thanks for coming today, and I want you to count New Jersey among those who are finally putting our students first.”
