Sauce for the Goose . . .

It's well known that Michelle Obama is school-shopping for her daughters Malia and Sasha, having toured elite private schools like Georgetown Day School and Sidwell Friends

I understand and sympathize with any parent's desire to obtain the best possible education for her children.  But given the Obamas' opposition to school choice for the many other parents living in DC who don't have their wealth, it's profoundly hypocritical for the President-elect and his wife implicitly to decide that the education to which they're willing to relegate poor DC children isn't quite good enough for their daughters. 

Apparently, the Obama Administration intends to create an Office of Urban Policy.  Given the fact that there's no mention of any education reform in the cities, it seems that it's little more than payoff for the President-elect's most loyal constituency.  And sacrificing the best interests of urban children through the US by caving in to the leadership of the teachers' unions -- who are scared to death of merit pay and the kind of performance-based remuneration that governs most other professions -- isn't exactly the "change we've been waiting for."
