Choosing D.C. system would boost reform, offer Obama reality check.
“Barack Obama made history as America’s first African-American president. He now has a chance to shatter another historic White House convention — as the first chief executive in three decades to send his children to a local public school.
Such a decision would have more than mere symbolic importance. The District of Columbia’s troubled system has come a long way since little Amy Carter attended Thaddeus Stevens Elementary, and even a scouting visit by the first family to some of our city’s outstanding public and public-charter schools would validate education-reform efforts here and across the nation.”
