BenZion update

More on the BenZion affair. Chancellor Rhee met with parents of Shepherd Elementary School students to explain why the school's principal was fired. Except that the only explanation was that Shepherd needed a principal that could "communicate, build consensus and community," the implication being that BenZion wasn't doing this. Beyond that Rhee declined to go into details.

I generally like the Rhee/Fenty team - I think they're making a lot of positive changes for DCPS. However, I sure wish there was more information on this particular move. It feels so odd... that it gives one the sense there's a backstory that hasn't been revealed.
