Focus, D.C. Council, focus

It has become apparent that not everyone in City Hall is on the same page as Chancellor Michelle Rhee when it comes to school reform. In fact, while we usually disagree with The Washington Post Editorial Page (Dec. 2) on matters of substantial import, we do agree on this issue: The chancellor "needs partners who have a stake in her success and will give her the necessary tools and support." It is vitally crucial that the overwhelming majority of the 13 council members stand with Mrs. Rhee as she shakes up the status quo. The best place to start is not with school-closing hearings, master facilities plans or mindless budget bickering. The best starting point is legislation that would grant the chancellor hiring and firing authority. The Washington Times
