My children, due to a variety of circumstances, have experienced public, private, and home schooling. All have their merits (with public school having the least), but the difference between us and the majority of other parents is that we have always had a choice. Those whose finances preclude a parent staying home to teach or private school tuition are at a serious disadvantage to those who do not need vouchers to afford them the same choices.
Obama has repeatedly stated that he is against school vouchers for the less advantaged yet, when given the choice to refute the "don't so as I do - do as I say" accusations, he and his wife chose private school for their daughters.
While admirable that the Obamas want the best education money can buy for their own children, it isdisingenuous at best to deny the same education for the "have nots" while justifying a large part of the decision as "security".
This is the "change we can believe in"?
