Obama: Only the Best for My Family, Tough Luck for the Rest…

The Wall Street Journal and Jonah Goldberg discuss the Obamas’ decision to send their daughters to the expensive private Sidwell Friends school, even as the President-elect opposes school vouchers that would allow some poorer families to take their children out of the atrocious DC public schools and provide the same opportunity to their children.

Of course this hypocrisy comes as no surprise. The teachers’ unions are the biggest guardians of the status quo, and they also provided important financial support to the Democratic party and the Obama campaign. Do you really think public education is going to significantly improve when there is a president and a congressional majority beholden to the teachers’ union?
