Michelle Rhee calls,
WASHINGTON — D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee is calling the results from the city’s mayoral primary "devastating."
Rhee made her comments Wednesday night at the Newseum — a day after D.C. Council Chairman Vincent Gray won the Democratic primary, making him the city’s presumptive next mayor.
Rhee says the election results were "devastating for the schoolchildren" of Washington. She says the reform community cannot retreat now and it’s time to lean forward and "be more aggressive and more adamant."
The schools chancellor did not directly criticize Gray, who has not said whether Rhee would stay on under his administration.
Mayor Adrian Fenty chose Rhee to head the public schools in 2007. Her approach has made her unpopular among some residents.
