Rhee vs Weingarten: one on one

The Post takes a look at the upcoming battle between Chancellor Rhee and ATF president Randi Weingarten over the new WTU labor contract.

The frightening thing is that this showdown has become a proxy for issues above and beyond the needs of DCPS.  National supporters of Rhee see this as a proxy for the burgeoning public school reform movement, while teachers and labour in general see this as a crucial defence of labour policy in this country. There's a real good chance that this will be first and foremost a fight for what's best for each side's national strategy, not necessarily what's good for DCPS.

At first I thought it was Gene Weingarten of the Post.
