Michelle A. Rhee, Founder and CEO, StudentsFirst, speaks about how she has been working for the last 18 years to give children the skills and knowledge they will need to compete in a changing world.
"I think the problem in public education is that we have been too soft. We always focus on the good things happening. We're not facing the problems. What is happening to the children in the school district is criminal.
