Michelle Rhee, founder and CEO of StudentsFirst, works on a computer at her office in Sacramento, California, April 27, 2012. Rhee has emerged as the leader of an unlikely coalition of politicians, philanthropists, financiers and entrepreneurs who believe the nation?s $500 billion-a-year public education system needs a massive overhaul. She has vowed to raise $1 billion for her national advocacy group, StudentsFirst, and forever break the hold of teachers unions on education policy. Picture taken April 27, 2012.
