D.C. Council Chairman Vincent Gray says an independent report on the city's school reforms is expected to come out soon. Gray says the National Academy of Sciences is wrapping up an evaluation of the implementation of the 2007 school reform law passed by the council. His spokeswoman says the report will be completed in November.

Gray says once the report is done the council will likely hold an oversight hearing. The Democratic mayoral nominee says he'll continue to pursue aggressive education reform. Gray says D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee has done some good things. But whether she stays in her post under his administration will be contingent upon the conversation he has with her when they meet.
