Former Washington DC schools chancellor Michelle Rhee was in Cleveland today to discuss education reform and her new organization, "Students First." Rhee, who had many confrontations with teacher unions, was featured prominently in the documentary "Waiting for Superman." Her style is controversial but many of her ideas are shared by education reformers across the country. She supports merit-based pay for teachers, the end of seniority protections, and data driven education reform. StateImpact Ohio's Ida Lieszkovszky met up with Rhee as she was touring one of Cleveland's top charter schools, Entrepreneurship Preparatory School.
