Both Kaya Henderson And Michelle Rhee Deny Seeing The Cheating Memo

The Associated Press reports that both Henderson and Rhee claim in statements they have never seen the internal DCPS memo from 2009 that pointed to possible widespread cheating on high stakes standardized tests in the school system.

Henderson also said in her statement through a spokesperson that the memo was based on incomplete information and flawed methodology.

She didn't say how she knew the memo was based on incomplete information or flawed methodology since she claims she doesn't remember seeing the memo, but I guess that's neither here nor there.

John Merrow, the reporter who broke the story about the memo, says he has a highly placed and reliable source who told him Rhee spoke about this memo at DCPS brass staff meetings.

It is clear that neither Rhee nor Henderson are going to be forthcoming about the memo or their actions after they were made aware of potential cheating DCPS in 2009.

The only way to get these women to, perhaps, come clean on the matter is to put them under oath in a criminal investigation.

Certainly the only way to hold these two purveyors of teacher accountability accountable themselves is to put them under oath in a criminal investigation.

Anything less will mean the powers that be in D.C. do not want to get to the bottom of the matter.

    We already know they do not want to get to the truth of the issue. It would expose them to being the frauds that they are...


  3. Yup....she's copping the "I wasn't aware of that" rap, just like,Jon Corzine.

    Corzine, literally robbed a billion dollars of private accounts due to his risky bets....and is walking around a free man in the punishment in sight. All he had to say to the Congress was ...."didn't t know about it".... Gets off without even a slap on the wrist.

    1. And yet Beverly Hall, who copped to the same thing, is under indictment in Atlanta.

      It really is who you know, isn't it?

  4. Rhee is lying. There will not be closure until an independent investigation with subpoena powers is conducted. As long as there is pressure on Rhee, there will never be closure. Keep up the pressure for a full independent investigation!
