D.C. schools chancellor Michelle A. Rhee on Thursday outlined her "Plan B," which she had threatened to use if the D.C. teachers union did not make a decision regarding her merit-pay contract proposal. Rhee's plan includes giving poorly performing teachers 90 days to improve or lose their jobs, downgrading seniority in lay-off decisions and establishing a new teacher evaluation based in part on student test scores.
