Reflecting on her time as the District of Columbia’s chancellor of education, Michelle Rhee encouraged those at the Harvard Graduate School of Education to get active in the game if they want to see change in education.
“We need help now,” she said. “We can’t wait 10 years for the longitudinal study.”
During the discussion at Askwith Hall, Rhee shared her experiences and warned the audience that she didn’t have a lot of answers to the issues that plague education, but that she certainly had many opinions. The latter Rhee openly discussed as part of the Nexus Series, a new doctoral colloquium that serves as an opportunity for Ed.D. and Ed.L.D. students and faculty to come together and engage with practitioners, leaders, and researchers who work at the nexus of practice, policy, and research.
