Rhee's Remarks on RIF'd Teachers

Related to my post yesterday, I just received an email from NBC4 requesting to get this word out to my readers...
DC Schools chancellor Michelle Rhee still hasn't explained her comments to a magazine that some of the teachers fired last October sexually abused students. The teachers union wants to know more about this ... and lots of parents do, too. We're chasing this story down tonight on News4 at 5 and 6.

Please watch News 4 this evening! And here's WTU President George Parker's message to the members sent out thru robocall last night:

The WTU leadership believes Chancellor Rhee statement regarding our RIF teachers was reckless, slanderous and damaging to the reputation of all RIFed teachers and an insult to all DCPS teachers. The WTU is requesting the DC City Council to immediately investigate these slanderous allegations and is in the process of discussing legal and other appropriate responses. We will keep you updated.

Same question that I asked yesterday, could this be a landmark case that real advocates of students and teachers have been waiting for?
