CSO slams Rhee's firing of principals

The Council of School Officers, the union representing DCPS principals, has come out strongly against Chancellor Rhee's recent firing of ~30 principals.
In a harshly worded letter to Rhee, Aona Jefferson, executive vice president of the Council of School Officers, said the firing decisions were made in a “factual vacuum” and says that union leaders are “distressed by the random and arbitrary” way that principals were let go.

“Such treatment is simply unacceptable,” the letter continues. “When ... decisions are made without reference to an individual’s performance evaluation, the entire evaluation process is rendered a mock and a sham.”

Rhee began informing principals about a week ago that they would have to leave by the end of June.
