Former D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee in 2008.

When Michelle Rhee became the new chancellor of DCPS, she quickly earned a reputation as the most blunt, least diplomatic school leader in the city's history. Now a year distanced from her time with DCPS, she's immersed in her new organization StudentsFirst, which advocates for education reform across the country. She talks with education reporter Kavitha Cardoza about her new venture, what she thinks about DCPS now and what she would have done differently.
