Michelle Rhee

Oprah Winfrey is calling D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee a “warrior woman” who has taken on the worst-performing school district in the country.

Rhee appears on Winfrey’s show airing Monday, along with Bill Gates and Davis Guggenheim, director of “Waiting for Superman,” a new documentary about public education. The interview was taped before last week’s primary election.

According to a transcript, Winfrey says Rhee’s drastic measures of firing teachers and principals has caused a firestorm in Washington. She says Rhee is “the warrior woman for our time.”

Rhee says there are lots of great teachers, but there are also ineffective ones who are doing a disservice to children.

Winfrey says that the audience stood up and applauded Rhee — something the schools chancellor acknowledged doesn’t happen everywhere.
