Obama Has Confidence in Public Schools - NOT!!

Michelle Rhee the chancellor of the DC public school system sends her two daughters to DCs public schools. She is doing an amazing job cleaning up DC schools while fighting the entrenched bureaucracy and the teachers union.

Obama could have boosted her efforts by sending his daughters to DCs schools. He could have walked the talk on improving education by leading from the top. Ah well, being an elitist has its privileges. What happened to change you can belive it? I guess it went by the wayside.

From the BBC
Malia and Sasha are attending Sidwell Friends, a private Quaker school in Washington's north-western suburbs.

Sasha, 7, will be going to Sidwell's elementary school campus, while Malia, 10, will attend its middle school.
