One thing in the news is the President-elect Obama checking out the D.C. area, the place he will call home for at least the next four years starting in January. We already know they will be picking out a dog they would like to adopt, but another decision amongst the family is will they put the kids in private or public schools. Jimmy Carter was one who preferred the public schools with his daughter Amy. However, the Clintons' chose private schools for Chelsea. The Obama children are at a young enough ages that making the move to a new school should go pretty seemless. Though, I am sure they will sure miss their schoolkid friends in Illinois at first. I for one think they could find a good public school out there. I can understand Carter's preference. But, the world is a different place that it was in the late 1970s. As children of a celebrity type status as in the President, I think private schools might be the better choice.
