D.C. Councilmen Don’t Send Kids to Neighborhood Schools
(Washington Examiner) — Two-thirds go for private schools D.C. Council members are sending their kids to pricey private schools instead of putting them in the city’s troubled public system that they urge other parents to invest in. Just one councilman sends his child to a neighborhood public school — in upper-middle-class Cleveland Park. Council Chairman Kwame Brown sends his kids to the same top-performing elementary school instead of his neighborhood school in Anacostia. The other four with school-age children send them to private schools.
