The Star Ledger is reporting that speculation over the future of former D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee, reported several times in this space, is true.
Rhee is reportedly in talks with Gov. Chris Christie to take over the state’s Department of Education, replacing fired Commissioner Bret Schundler.
According to the Ledger, Rhee is balking at the spot because of the distance from Sacramento, Calif., where her husband, former NBA star Kevin Johnson, is mayor.
Take heart Michelle. According to Google maps, you can make the trip from the statehouse on West State Street in Treton to City Hall on I Street in Sacramento in 44 hours – IF you don’t stop for gas and munchies.
