City Paper is not for tourists
The AP has it: “D.C. officials say they are discussing public school options with President-elect Barack Obama’s family for their two young daughters.”
That’s apparently gleaned from the following statement released today—-which barely, glancingly implies that there has indeed been contact between the Obama family and DCPS:
The Mayor and the Chancellor believe that every parent, including the Obamas, should make the decision on where to send their children to school based solely on what school is in the best interest of the child. We’ve gladly discussed the many educational options at DCPS, encouraged them to explore all of the alternatives and in the end will fully support whatever decision the Obamas make.
Most of that is a rehash of what’s been the DCPS party line since at least Friday. In a conversation Monday evening with LL, Rhee wouldn’t discuss the Obamas’ plans.
