No Decision On Rhee's Future As Head Of DCPS

By Kavitha Cardoza

D.C. Council Chairman Vincent Gray and schools chancellor Michelle Rhee met this afternoon for almost an hour and a half for the first time since the mayoral primary, but Gray says they didn't discuss Rhee's future in the District.

Gray appeared relaxed as he addressed reporters shouting out questions after the much-anticipated meeting. He said they only discussed their "educational philosophies", not Rhee's future in DCPS. Gray said they talked about what's been happening in the school system over the past few years, higher education and early childhood education.

"This was not a decision making meeting. This was an opportunity for the chancellor and I to have a conversation broadly about public education in the city," Gray says.

Rhee was uncharacteristically quiet and appeared ill at ease. She didn't stand next to Gray to address reporters and wouldn't answer any questions except for a brief "no comment" and "the chairman summed it up." Gray says they'll have another meeting in the next few weeks and reiterated he will not make any personnel decisions until after the November election.
