July 27 (Bloomberg) -- "Bloomberg Risk Takers" profiles Michelle Rhee, the controversial education reformer who fought to change the American public school system. As former DC Chancellor, Rhee made headlines when she shook up one of the toughest school systems in the country and closed 15 percent of the district's public schools, firing hundreds of teachers in the process. The education establishment fought back, and Rhee was criticized by some parents and students. In 2010, Rhee announced the launch of StudentsFirst, a national organization she hopes will enable the US to regain its competitive edge in education. (Source: Bloomberg)
