Obamas Choose Sidwell for Their Girls, No DCPS

The Obamas have chosen Sidwell Friends as the school for their young daughters, Sasha and Malia. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty and Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee have wished them well as the First-Family-in-Waiting continues its transition to the White House.

Michelle Obama's spokesperson said that security was a major factor in the family's choice. That had to resonate given the District's terrible week regarding school violence. Rhee appeared before the D.C. Council this week to discuss the violence and other issues.

Share your thoughts about the Obamas' choice of schools in our comments section. If you were in their shoes, what choice would you have made?
