Public or private school for Obamas?
...choice for me, not for thee
The country will have a great opportunity to see liberal hypocrisy on parade as the Obamas decide where to send their two kids to school in the coming weeks.
Of course, just like every other good liberal, Obama opposed school choice...especially vouchers. Pretty much any program that empowers parents who arent rich. And, just like pretty much every other liberal, he sends his kids to an elite private school that only a fraction of his supporters could afford.
So, as they make the transition to DC, the buzz is over where the kids will attend...and we'll get to watch his delicate dance of trying to quietly send them to an elite DC private school, while paying lip service to the public schools...no doubt probably saying that he really wanted them to go there, but it was a "security" issue (an understatement for most of the regular kids in the DC system).
The point is not that anyone should be criticized for wanting to send their kids to the place where they can get the best education, but rather that the politicians who tend to oppose making that option a reality for everyone else, usually take advantage of it themselves.
In other words, they're hypocrites.
