Look who's on the cover of the latest issue of TIME: D.C. school chief Michelle Rhee, who's best known for her unconventional and sometimes controversial approach to school reform.
For example, she's always battling the Washington Teachers' Union for more power to fire teachers she deems ineffective and giving the good ones six-figure salaries. Some alleged that the firing process was not transparent and fair.
She even fired her own kid's principal :)
She's also committed to shut down almost two dozen schools in what she calls D.C.'s decrepit, shrinking, public-education system.
