Ben Zion update

More reaction to Galeet Ben Zion's firing (or is it BenZion, or Benzion, I've seen all three versions). WJLA talks to Ben Zion and parents of Shepherd Elementary School students.

This is a real shame. I know a family that chose this school, specifically because of their interest in FLES (foreign language in elementary schools) which Ben Zion championed.

I wonder what they'll do now.

I'm generally inclined to like Rhee and to approve of her Reformist attack on DCPS, but this move is hard to understand.

Every time I hear about this I go, "WTF?", which is pretty much what that news clip did too. Come on, DCPS, throw us a bone. Is she a child molester? Drop a rumor at least so know the gist of what your argument will be when the lawyers say you can talk.
