Barack and Michelle Obama are to be complimented for being very involved with the rearing of their children. They have been busily checking out expensive, exclusive private schools in the Washington, DC area.
One cannot fault them for turning their backs on the local DC public schools. By most any gauge of school performance, DC public schools positively reek. As a quick example (there are many more I won’t bore you with), DC comes in dead last in SAT scores, behind all fifty states.
