  • Don't all of the first-children attend some sort of private school? I don't know why obama would be any different, it's got to be a security nightmare to have children that young in the white house.

  • Because the public schools in that area bite and security for the girls.

  • Safety. It would be much harder for the Secret Service to secure a public school.

    And no, they don't HAVE to go to private school. Chelsea Clinton did but Amy Carter didn't. However, the world is a little more dangerous now than it was in the 70's when Amy went to school.

    And besides, they attend private school now. Why should their parents change?

  • I think either way they will be some of the safest children in America. If the Obamas choose a private school then that school will have even tighter security. Private schools don't necessarily have better security measures than public schools. In fact, some public schools I have been in had better security than the private schools I have been in. However, if they attend a local public school I am also equally sure it will be one of the most safest schools to send any child due to the mega beef in security. No matter what the Obamas do they will be criticized for their decision. Being Ivy League snobs if they send their children to private schools or trying to pretend to be like an average American if they go to a public school to win over the public. Its a parents right to determine what is best for their children. I'm not going to second guess theirs'.

  • The Obama children already attend a 'private' school, why should that change now? That is a parent's perogative on what school/schools they want their children to matter if their last name is Obama. For many years I lived in Chicago, my children attended a Catholic school, because it was what I thought was best for my young children. And being the neighborhood we lived in at the time wasn't all that great, it definitely was a 'safety' concern/issue for me.
