Fire up the popcorn and settle into your easy chair this evening for a varied and fascinating night of TV viewing on PBS Hawaii, including our 10:00 pm offering, FRONTLINE The Education of Michelle Rhee.
The former Chancellor of Washington D.C. public schools is one of the most admired - and most reviled - school reformers in America. We'll examine her battles with the teachers' unions and her handling of a cheating scandal as Rhee returns to the national stage.
