Michelle Rhee announces StudentsFirst on the Oprah Winfrey Show
First Stephen Colbert, then the Newsweek cover — our founder, Michelle Rhee, is pounding the media pavement to connect with families about education and what we all need to do to challenge the status quo and push for education reform.
Yesterday, Michelle appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show to officially unveil StudentsFirst, outline our core beliefs, and connect with Oprah’s 10 million viewers. Oprah said it was a huge task, a "seminal moment," and yes, Oprah, you’re right. One billion dollars is a lot to raise, but that’s what it’s going to take to get our schools back on top and to educate our children with the expectations they deserve.
