Michelle Rhee vs. Julian Vasquez Heilig on Twitter

A debate/conversation started Friday evening with my response to a @MichelleRhee tweet about her tiredness with the traditional school versus charter school debate. I tweeted that I was “totally tired too” of people “ignoring data” that traditional schools outperform charters. Debates on Twitter usually get lost in the annals of twitter history— so I turned to Storify to log the debate/conversation. What is Storify? It “helps making sense of what people post on social media.” Users curate voices and turn them into stories.

    A fascinating read and takes the charter– vs. public school debate to another level. Adios Michelle y bienvenida Julian — a Sacramento State colleague.


  2. Thank you Dr. JVH for taking on this impossible woman’s shadowy power. I can only hope that she’ll continue to engage those who know better until ALL of her views are discredited.

    I had put it out of my mind that Michelle Rhee would risk debating anyone as thoroughly knowledgeable and articulate as Julian Vasquez Heilig but now it has happened!!! I doubt that she knew what she was in for when she tweeted at 10:22 PM on a Friday night and Julian engaged her. The back and forth is everything one could hope it to be!!! WOW!
