The Obama girls will attend Sidwell Friends, a Quaker private school with campuses in Maryland and Washington, D.C. Chelsea Clinton is a Sidwell alum and three of Joe Biden’s grandchildren go there. Allegedly, Michelle Obama considered D.C. public schools — there are some good ones — but none made the short list. Highly educated upper-middle-class parents, especially those who succeeded because of their access to educational opportunities, don’t compromise on their kids’ education.
On the Obamas’ visit to the White House, the Bush daughters gave the Obama daughters tips on bed jumping.
“We helped them jump on the beds,” Barbara said. “We used to jump on the beds when we were little, too.”
Remember their grandfather was president too, so they have a lot of White House experience.
“They’re really tall beds; you need to get a running start,” the first lady said.
I’m sure the Obama girls will master the technique.
