School Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee and Allen Y. Lew, head of the school modernization efforts, teamed up late yesterday in a letter-writing campaign to the District Council. They want to make absolutely sure that the council is absolutely clear that if it doesn't pass the $83 million in building repair contracts today it would cause serious problems.The Post Editorial board weighs in on the subject as well.
"If these contracts are not finalized...a successful and timely school opening will be put at substantial risk," Rhee wrote.
