Chancellor Michelle Rhee's future as head of D.C.'s Public schools is still uncertain. A discussion with Council Chairman Vincent Gray didn't result in a decision.

Rhee appeared uncharacteristically subdued after the almost 90 minute meeting. Despite cameras rolling, and mikes pointed at her, she wouldn't answer any questions, including those about whether she would stay to run DCPS.

Rhee stood off to the side, rather than next to Gray. Gray did all the talking, while she offered only a "no comment" and "the chairman summed it up."

Gray said they talked about what's been happening in schools over the past few years. He said neither talked about Rhee's future.

"She didn't say 'I want to leave,' she didn't say 'I want to stay.' It was a discussion that was important to establish a foundation to determine the best course for our children," says Gray.

Another meeting is expected to be held in the next few weeks.
