D.C. chancellor fires 18 special-education employees

Washington, D.C. schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee fired 18 employees from the school system's special-education department, according to an official statement. A spokeswoman for Rhee said the firings were part of cost-saving measures and attempts to achieve the special-education department's "overarching goals and initiatives," but Rhee's critics questioned whether there were other motives behind the cuts.
