Radical AUTHOR Michelle Rhee Summary ô 108 Nspiring vision for our nation's troubled education syste. I hate giving this one star because I feel like that suggests I disagree with her politics but that s not the problem here On politics we probably agree than we disagree plus our backgrounds are fairly similar did TFA went to grad school like statistics and research ended up in ed policy etc The problem is that this book is really badly written and portrays her in a very ugly light In fact it s so badly written that I couldn t finish it Second time this year that I ve dropped a book without finishing it Perhaps I m getting a little cranky in my late twenties I admired Michelle Rhee going into this but now I can t get over the icky feeling that she s the Napoleon of ed reform That s low praise for something she wrote about herselfRhee tries to portray herself as a humble individual working to remedy social justice issues but every page drips with ego and underscores a lack of self awareness and a surprising lack of integrity The stories from her childhood that she describes as leadership are actually based in manipulation and could possibly be considered bullying The story about making two buses full of classmates accept punishment for something she did should either end with But then I confessed my guilt to the principal and took responsibility for my actions or And I regret not having shown the courage and integrity that the situation demanded Instead it ends with I kid you notThis kind of maneuvering became commonplace for me I would use my reputation as the good girl to my advantage throughout my young adulthood p 16She also describes learning the lesson that firing someone without warning can scare the remaining employees into doing better work Is it any wonder that she was not loved as a leader in DCFor someone who takes offense at the way she was judged and discriminated against for being Korean she sure is uick to lump people into easy categories and write them off as flat characters The kid on the bus who won t give up his seat is King of the Nerds She calls the head of a major foundation a jerk and a pain in the butt after identifying him BY FIRST AND LAST NAME Seriously And I m sorry but describing Wendy Kopp s dance moves and how her bra strap kept falling down is neither kind nor remotely professional not to mention irrelevant Great leaders approach all people with a baseline of respect Though Rhee speaks compassionately about disadvantaged students that tone doesn t often extend to adults She seems constitutionally incapable recognizing and respecting the inherent dignity of every person no matter their ageI m all about truth bombs strong women and telling it like it is but this autobiography severely damaged my impression of Rhee The title itself Radical Fighting to Put Students First hints at a belief in her own exceptionalism The vast majority of people in education try to put students first that idea is not radical To me this book is a testament to the fact that she has no legitimate claim to the moral high groundReading part of this book cost me an icon guys What a shame
