    Michelle Rhee, the public schools chancellor of the District of Columbia who drew attacks from unions for firing more than 200 teachers, mostly over student performance, will resign today, according to a person familiar with the situation.

    Rhee will announce her decision at a press conference later this morning, said the person, who declined to be identified because the announcement hasn’t been made official. Rhee’s boss, Mayor Adrian Fenty, lost his bid for re-election Sept. 14 in a primary in which Rhee’s educational policies became a central issue. Fenty’s opponent, City Council Chairman Vincent Gray, had declined to say whether he would support Rhee.
