Tavis Smiley Discuses Alleged Inflated Test Scores with Michelle Rhee

Is this another attempt to simply attack Michelle Rhee or is there any truth to the allegations as laid out in USA Today’s article?

In an interview Tuesday with PBS’ Tavis Smiley, Rhee dismissed the USA Today article, saying that most of it focuses on one school that the investigating firm said required no further inquiry.

“We followed all the right protocol,” she said. “What I think is the unfortunate piece is often times, when the academic achievement rates of a district like D.C. go up, people assume that it can’t be because kids are actually attaining higher gains in student achievement but that it’s because of something like cheating, which in this case was absolutely not the case.”
