Henderson wants more than reform as her baby

As if Kaya Henderson doesn't have enough on her plate as the soon-to-be interim DCPS chancellor, she says she'd also like to get pregnant.

Henderson, 40, who says she is single but in a relationship, was telling Channel 4's Tom Sherwood Thursday that she was committed to moving D.C. schools ahead aggressively when she added:

"I'm going to have some babies some time very quickly and I want them to go to school here."

Interview is here.

At 40 years of age,
Henderson might adopt a baby instead --
or, perhaps, make a home
for a foster child.

just a thought.....
(I don't know her plans).

Just what the children of DCPS need: another unwed woman having babies out of wedlock. Don't they see enough of that already?

UrbanDweller and honest policy,
Your comments are totally inappropriate. You both sound like George Bush.

If you want to make a political point on this subject you should have made this point:

In the name of sending her children to a DCPS school, Henderson will most likely enroll her kids to a school west of the park (or on Capitol Hill) just like what Rhee, Fenty and Reinoso have done.

And these "education reform leaders" can continue living in a different reality than the rest of the schools.

I am not making a political point here --

I am simply offering a healthy, beneficial,
caring and mature perspective
that is
sensible & pragmatic.

(as need may be)..... At 40 years of age,
Henderson might adopt a baby instead --
or, perhaps, make a home
for a foster child.

just a thought.....
(I don't know her plans).

So the priest fro Gtown that was your mentor that praying for you to get the position We the people or praying that we get. Someone with experience and that's not a clone of the Fool that resigned . Please understand your position

Kaya, if you have any babies, send them to private school. They will be offered a much richer curriculum than what we currently offer at DCPS, which is an opportunity to be prepped for the DC CAS.

letsbereal2: I made the point I wanted to make but I agree with your point as well.

The older she gets, the more liklier she may have a child with issues like Down Syndrome or other problems.

Not only that, but the older you get the less energy you have.

I hope she thinks this over carefully.

Reality TV has overtaken us...Whatever happened to saying "I'd rather not discuss that personal aspect of my life in public"???
