Michelle Rhee asserts that teachers had sex with children

Bill Turque, the Post reporter covering DC schools, has a good catch today:
Now we have Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee's assertion, in the February issue of Fast Company magazine, that some of the 266 educators laid off in the October budget reduction had had sex with students, while others had hit them.


"I got rid of teachers who had hit children, who had had sex with children, who had missed 78 days of school. Why wouldn't we take those things into consideration?" she asked.


Exactly how many of the laid off teachers had sex with children?

Exactly how many had hit children?

Why did it take a budget-driven reduction in force to get rid of them?

Did the District try to bring criminal prosecution against these educators before laying them off?
