In reaction to the news that D.C. schools chancellor Michelle Rhee has resigned, Miss Eyre, on NYC Educator’s blog, writes:

I apparently didn't get the memo that quitting is the noble thing to do. I mean, Sarah Palin got it and Michelle Rhee got it, but I didn't. I don't know. Maybe I was too busy teaching to catch it.

(Or maybe she was too busy perfecting the art of sarcasm? Oh snap!)

Ms. Eyre goes on to say that it constitutes a “logical lapse” for Michelle Rhee to say she’s quitting in an effort to keep pushing reform:

...[D]on't give me this I-love-school-"reform"-so-much-that-I-must-stop-"reforming" nonsense.
