D.C. schools are fit for the Obamas
By Sally Greenberg,
I am so tired of reading articles about how no D.C. public school can measure up to Sidwell Friends School or other private schools in the city [“Obama says D.C. schools not on par with Sidwell,” front page, Sept. 28]. And what’s doubly infuriating is that our Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee gets right on board and agrees with the disrespect that President Obama lobbed at D.C. public schools.
My son has attended D.C. schools since kindergarten, and he’s now a sophomore at Woodrow Wilson Senior High School, where he takes honors chemistry, AP history, honors English and pre-calculus from excellent teachers. He also got an excellent education at Alice Deal Middle School, where the president’s children might be going had he chosen public schools.
And it doesn’t cost $31,000 a year.
