With all those black citizens in DC... Why would Obama snub them and....

The Associated Press

Fri, Nov 21, 2008 (5:21 p.m.)

President-elect Barack Obama and his wife have chosen Sidwell Friends School for their two daughters, opting for a private institution that another White House child, Chelsea Clinton, attended a decade ago.

1. The Obama's girls attend private school in Chicago.

2. Friends sponsored schools are generally considered to offer superior educations. (I have a Jewish friend who would send her two boys to a Friends school if she could afford it.)

3. The Secret Service may have insisted on a private school for security reasons.

Having "first children" attend their school would be a complete nightmare to any public school. The adjustments for security would totally change the atmosphere of the school, and probably interfere with any hopes of an education for the rest of the kids.

Private schools, on the other hand, are set up to be "private". I personally commemnd the Obama family for not making life difficult for the general public of the DC area by going to a private school.

Those are valid arguments.

That said might I suggest that if the Obama family really wanted to provide their children with a quality education outside the crime ridden and failed public schools of DC then the best avenue would be "Home schooling"

That way they would be at least sharing some of the pain with their brothers and sisters.

Another consideration for sending them off to a public school: The girls would get a first hand education about dope, homosexuality, crime and stupidity in a real living environment.

Hey! If the DC public schools are good enough for their neighbors. Neighbors who overwhelmingly voted for them, then it should be good enough for the Obama family.

Another political benefit would be: They could say. "I might not share my wealth with you, but I can sure share your pain"

Sound fair? emoticon

Saltine, did you and your wife home school? Are you qualified to do so?

As a practical matter are the Obamas supposed to take the time out of their schedules or are they to hire a private tutor?

In any case, it's little of our business where and how the Obamas choose to have their children attend school. It's a private, family matter.

What's up with Obama? He and his wife want their children to live to a ripe old age. Very simple, if you stop to think about it. Of course, both the Clintons and the Obamas are hyppocrites as they think it's perfectly fine to make white people choose to send their kids to hellish public schools or pay through the nose for private schools, or, as a last resort, MOVE. But that's SOP for liberals, don't you know? Same old, same old...

If you remember, the Bush daughters were freshmen in college when GWB was elected. One of them was at a private university. They got criticized for what they did in public, not for the schools they went to.

The Obama kids are 7 and 10. There's a world of difference between them and the Bush twins.

Oh, and do you have a problem with the way Chelsea Clinton turned out?

The only difference PP is your trying to put a fence around them because they are liberals like you.

Are you that blond?
