Rhee ties the knot

September 7, 2011

Public school reformer Michelle Rhee has wed Sacramento Mayor and former basketball star Kevin Johnson. The Sacramento Bee reports it was a quiet, weekend affair held at a Tennessee farm where the couple once spent a romantic weekend.

Rhee is something of a super-star in education reform circles, though critics call her a union-buster who focuses on test scores to an extreme degree. She had a stormy tenure as Chancellor of the Washington, D.C. public schools, during which time she overlapped with Rhode Island’s Education Commissioner Deborah Gist.

The founder of the alternative teacher training program The New Teacher Project, Rhee now runs a non-profit political advocacy group called StudentsFirst.
