Jon Stewart Takes on Michelle Rhee

Last night, Jon Stewart stood up for teachers against the misguided and damaging policies of former D.C. superintendent Michelle Rhee. From the Washington Post online article: "Stewart said, 'It seems like education can only be put in place once the soil is fertile.' His suggestion – that for many children even great teachers can’t overcome the effects of hunger and poor nutrition and exhaustion and trauma from violence — was exactly right."

I couldn't agree more.
