So today was the first day of school in D.C. for little Malia and Sasha Obama, First Daughters. The two girls are attending the Sidwell Friends School, a private Quaker school for the well-heeled — the school where many First Kids, including Chelsea Clinton, went.
I know President Obama and the First Lady debated sending their kids to public vs. private school but I think they made the right decision. I remember Amy Carter going to a public school here in D.C. and being bombarded by photographers way too often for a child. Remember this shot of Amy on her first day of school in D.C.?
I can’t imagine what it’s like to be the First Kids, all those people talking about you, the cameras and the scrutiny. Malia and Sasha seem like great kids. I hope the media backs off.
