Michelle Rhee and Florida have elevated their education reform relationship from a fling to a full-on romance as Rhee pledged to continue advising Gov. Rick Scott into his first term.

Rhee's name headlined the Republican governor's education transition team, and now that Scott's taken the oath, Rhee said she will stay on as an informal adviser.

The announcement was bellowed not to the press — and for once, not to Oprah — but to the students at Florida International Academy, a charter in Opa-Locka, during a visit with the governor.

Sources close to Rhee, the former D.C. schools chancellor who now heads nonprofit advocacy group StudentsFirst, told The Washington Examiner that plans to release a national legislative agenda on Thursday were delayed due to Rhee's busy schedule. The agenda is expected to be released early next week.
