Journalist and author Richard Whitmire.
When Michelle Rhee came on board as Chancellor of D.C.'s Public Schools, there was the question of whether she would succeed. Richard Whitmire's new book, The Bee Eater, profiles Rhee's time in the District. He speaks with Kavitha Cardoza about the book... and how Rhee's adventures as a teacher in Baltimore inspired the intriguing title.
