A Dose of Rhee-ality

The Daily Kos’s Laura Clawson reports on “education reformer” Michelle Rhee’s latest contribution to the America’s children.  Rhee’s group StudentsFirst ranks states by their education policies, not results.  The states ranked highly by the group include those which are most hostile to teachers unions.  As a proponent of so-called reform, Rhee puts students last and politics first.  StudentsFirst’s top ranked state is Louisiana, which ranked 49/51 on 8th grade reading scores and 47/51 on 8th grade math scores.  Clearly this rating is not based in fact – or reality.
