The Obamas & School Choice

With regard Joe Lawler's post about the Obama Administration's opposition to Speaker John Boehner's efforts to restore funding to the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program (OSP) why is it that the Obamas can send their daughters to the school of their choice but would deny the same opporunity to their neighbors in the District of Columbia? If the Obamas truly believed in public education they would send their daughters to a public school. But when it comes right down to it President Obama doesn't really believe in the efficacy of public education. His support for public education begins and ends with the teachers' unions. In the grand scheme of things, it is a classic case of public education for thee but not for me.
