Radical: Fighting to Put Students First
All Library locations will close at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 18 for a staff development event.
Educator Michelle Rhee joins Library Director Crosby Kemper III for a public conversation about her new book Radical: Fighting to Put Students First and explains her ideas for improving public education by ensuring that laws, leaders, and politics are making students – not adults – their top priority.
Rhee is past chancellor of the Washington D.C. Public Schools and the founder, CEO, and president of the New Teacher Project. In 2010, she founded StudentsFirst, a non-profit organization which works on education reform issues such as ending teacher tenure.
This event is co-sponsored by the Show-Me Institute.
