Rhee is reluctant to work with donors who could help schools

Private donors say they have been reluctant to give money to Washington, D.C., public schools because schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee will not reveal how money will be spent and because she has been cool to their efforts to build partnerships. Donors say they would be willing to help the cash-strapped school system but will need a more open relationship with Rhee, whose "go-it-alone" attitude has reportedly turned off many philanthropists, a Washington Post columnist writes. The Washington Post

I believe that we can make things better for the sake of the students that we all serve through collaboration and partnerships. Like Andrew Wolf in his article in Cornell Sun, I wish that this administration would not deny the teachers our right to participate in the process of reform where our voices and commitment are so deeply needed. Why can’t we all work together?
