We reported on Ms. Rhee back in 2009. She was always supportive of Charter Schools during her time heading the Chancellor of the Washington D.C. public schools. She is now married to the man who is Mayor of Sacramento, California. According to KCRA in Sacramento she is on President-Elect Trump’s short list to head the Department of Education. Teacher’s unions of course oppose her.

President-elect Donald Trump will be meeting with Sacramento First Lady Michelle Rhee as a potential candidate for secretary of education.

Danielle Hagen with Trump’s administration confirmed the meeting will take place in New Jersey on Saturday.


Rhee is widely known as the former chancellor for Washington, D.C., public schools, fighting the teachers’ union as she made a polarizing push for charter schools and voucher programs.

“Michelle Rhee was a disaster in Washington D.C. She supported independent, privately-run charters — sometimes for-profit,” Sacramento City Teachers Association Vice President Davis Fisher said. “Pretty much used private school rules and public money to continue the have and have-nots.”
