Michele Rhee, the former Chancellor of the Washington DC public schools, who went on to start the education reform group Students First, started her career in education in Baltimore almost two decades, part of “Teach for America” 1992.  She’s coming back to Baltimore Tuesday in the Baltimore Speaker Series presented by Stevenson University and sponsored by WYPR.  Before a live audience, she’ll talk with our own Sheilah Kast.  The event is on Tuesday, November 1, at 8pm at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore.

People are still analyzing her impact as DC’s schools chancellor.  A few weeks ago, The Washington Post  did an analysis of her tenure,  and one element they brought up was the sense of URGENCY she brings to the work.

Sheilah talks with Michele Rhee about this sense of urgency  in advance of their meeting at the Meyerhoff tomorrow.
