Apparently, President-elect Obama is NOT considering the D.C Public (government) schools as an option for his daughters. Now while I can't blame the Secret Service for telling the incoming President that they really would prefer NOT to try to provide security in such a situation, I do think that any politician who opposes school choice ought to be REQUIRED to send his children (or grandchildren for older pols) to the local government schools. If it's good enough for the poor, it's good enough for politicians.
At the very least, voters ought to remember which politicians work against school choice while sending their children to private and parochial schools, and vote accordingly.
