Private School for Obama Kids Just Doesn't Bother Me

Conservative commentators are making hay out of the fact that Barack and Michelle will be sending their daughters to a private school. How can the liberal savior of the common man not be a hypocrite if he sends his kids to private school? That's the Conservative whine.

I'm a public school teacher in one of America's poorest counties. I suspect that the First Family provides unique considerations when it comes to education the children. it really doesn't bother me to see the First Kids go to a private school.

It will bother me even less if Bill Richardson ends up in the education chair at cabinet meetings...
