First Family Picks School for Sasha and Malia

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Michelle and Barack have selected an elite private school in DC for their beautiful daughters:

There were obvious reasons for the Obamas to pick Sidwell Friends for their daughters Sasha and Malia. As the school that educated Chelsea Clinton, Al Gore III and the Nixon girls, it understands the unique personal and security needs of prominent children. It provides a first-rate education on two well-equipped campuses. Nearly four in 10 students are children of color. But the choice makes sense at a philosophical level as well, because of how Quakers view the challenge of shaping children into socially responsible and spiritually aware adults.

We will never get tired of the Obamas, yeah, we are a little drunk on the First Family. Pic of the Sidwell Friends school below.

    Sold @ 4 of 10 children of color at a school that charges almost $29,000 for 2nd grade. Another example that Yes We Can…We Already Were…You Didn’t Know?

    In some interview they “claimed” they were considering public schools. Bull, those elitist would never put their kids in a publc elementary – high school. And of course they wouldn’t want to help anyone in the lower class have an option at sending their kids to a private school either.

    Hahaha !dO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO ! WTF

  • OneLove

    i think this is a great choice! as far as those who think you have to be an ‘elitist’ to want to send your child to a good school, i call b*llsh*t! ANYONE can put in the effort to make their local public school a (much) better school or arrange their family’s financial priorities (incl. scholarship opportunities/grants) to allow their kids to attend private school (incl. parochial schools).

    it’s all about what YOU are prepared to do for your and yours, boo.

    Agreed! The Obama’s comes from the same cloth as the rest those Jack n’ Jill black bourgeoisie sect.

    They may have come from humble beginnings but they’ve definitely adjusted and embraced the lifestyles and perks of the rich.

    Here comes the new boss, same as the old boss.

  • Karen

    Gimme a break!

    Do as I say, not as I do….

    I’m sure the Obamas wish more Blacks would DO AS THEY DID.

    They….

    Valued education and made sure they got a good one..

    ..Worked hard instead of sitting around waiting on the government to improve their lives…

    …MARRIED and ESTABLISHED THEMSELVES before having children

    …Made/make sure their children are well educated.

    Ah yes…PLEASE, Black people, DO AS THEY DO!!!

    Hey, JAMES ARRINGTON,

    How/Why would they “help someone in the lower class have an option of sending their children to a private school” when they had their own darned children to worry about educating???

    Here’s an idea: Why don’t we all worry about and take care of the ones we decide to bring onto this Earth? Novel idea, isn’t it?

    By the way, the lower class DID/DOES have the same option. They just made/make different choices.

    My child goes to a private school. And it’s because I cared enough to be involved in his education and make the sacrifice–ya know, like Obama’s single mother did.

    I didn’t wait for Obama to come into office and throw personally invite me to become more interested in my child’s education.

    I admire Jimmy Carter for sending Amy to a public school. He sent a powerful message, and that decision showed a lot of faith and integrity. I can understand the Obamas’ decision, too. Quakers are very progressive, and they stand by their beliefs in everyday life. Sidwell Friends is a great choice.

  • Anna

    Public, Private, Charter or to Home School. It’s a parents choice. I had a kid in a private school and it only confussed her and the beliefs she was taught for the first 5 years of her life. Catholic Schooling does provide a great education but to have mass everyday vs being a member of a black holy church caused problems spiritually. Being a parent we know each kid is different. My kids ended up going to public schools. 2/3 survived. I wish I would have chosen a different school for one of my kids. Public Schools are not what they use to be. My kids attended the same schools as their dad and I did. Our saying is “if it was good enough for us it’s good enough for you”. Times have changed. It’s not good enough anymore.

  • WordtotheWise

    What parent wouldn’t want to send their kids to the best school. The Obamas can afford it and don’t have to prove anything to anyone. Maybe if some people would not buy the designer bags, sneakers, and sacrificed, they, too, could send their children to private school. Don’t be jealous of those that can. The problem is too many people don’t put enough importance on education. If I were the Obamas, there is no way I would send my children to private good. Good for them!

    I don’t care what was said in a previous interview. I live in the DC/MD area and there is no way in hell I would send my child to a DC or MD Public school. Those public school systems don’t have the type of security to protect those girls and it would be foolish for their parents to even consider sending them to a DC/MD/or VA public school. Sidwell Friends is a good school but I would have preferred Georgetown Day School. I wanted them to try a new school since Chelsea Clinton had already went to Sidwell Friends.

  • Janelle

    I live in the DC/MD area, DC public schools are no place for those girls. Private school is the best way to go and Sidwell Freinds is an excellent choice, it is a very good school.
