D.C.'s Mayor-elect Vincent Gray recently introduced Kaya Henderson as D.C.'s interim schools chancellor. She was former Chancellor Michelle Rhee's right-hand person, responsible for two of Rhee's most controversial initiatives: the new teacher evaluation system and the new union contract.

In her first in-depth interview since taking over District schools, Henderson talks with WAMU's Kavitha Cardoza about her vision for DCPS, how she hopes her 13 years in the District will help as well as some of the challenges she faces.
