D.C.'s Rhee acknowledges need for better communication with teachers

D.C. schools chief Michelle A. Rhee says she spoke to principals about communication, not teacher trust.

Washington, D.C., Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee is hoping to "regain the trust" of the district's teachers -- according to some who say Rhee acknowledged that she may have lost that trust when she laid off 266 educators this month. Rhee says she did not make that statement, which allegedly came during a monthly school leadership meeting. "What I said was that we needed to do a better job of making sure we were communicating effectively with our educators," she said. "There are a lot of distractions, and we have to remain focused on the task at hand." The Washington Post
