    While Michelle Obama’s skimpy school lunch mandates have been widely rejected by students and schools, the elite private school attended by both Obama daughters will be serving chicken wings and potato chips on Wednesday. Sidwell Friends is the elite private school with a $36,264 tuition per child where President Obama sent his daughtersinstead of Cardozo high school, a government-run school in Washington, D.C. After Wednesday’s chicken wings , on Thursday Obama’s daughters can get a Cuban sandwich. Pasco County Schools in Florida had to eliminate Cuban sandwiches because they violated Michelle Obama’s lunch standards. Land O’ Lakes High had gone...

    A rare, salacious lawsuit against the elite DC private school drags high-profile Washingtonians into unwanted limelight and airs graphic e-mails from the psychologist who taught sex ed at the Obama daughters’ school. The exceedingly messy lawsuit is headed for trial—and the circle of high-profile Washingtonians wrapped up in the case is expanding. A Sidwell official claims a school psychologist had an affair with his wife while treating his daughter, then five, and that Sidwell took “flagrant and outrageous actions” that allowed the “open sexual relationship.” For Sidwell—an elite private school in DC with an annual tuition of around $34,000—the lawsuit...
  • Obama's school advertizing to fill armed guard positions.

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney says the NRA's ad is "repugnant and cowardly." Setting aside the irony of a Quaker school with armed guards, do you suppose Jay thinks it is "repugnant and cowardly" for Sidwell Friends School to be advertizing to fill a vacancy for armed guards? Armed guards are a routine part of exclusive high dollar private schools in big cities like Washington. And the elite demand nothing less. But don't you dare protect your kids! For those outside the beltway, Sidwell Freinds is fameously where the Clintons sent, and Obamas send, their children to school. Tuition...
  • Obama wants ban on assault weapons - ‘Skeptical’ about idea of guns in schools

    The national debate over gun control may have been pushed to the back burner in favor of the “fiscal cliff” battle, but President Obama remains committed to confronting the issue no matter the resistance from gun owners and the National Rifle Association. In a rare appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Mr. Obama expressed strong support for a reinstatement of the federal ban on assault weapons, outlawing high-capacity clips and a better system of background checks for those seeking to buy firearms. He’s long supported those ideas, as have many Democrats, but the mass shooting at Sandy Hook...
  • School Obama's Daughters Attend Has 11 Armed Guards

    Some interesting news has broken in the wake of the latest push for gun control by President Obama and Senate Democrats: Obama sends his kids to a school where armed guards are used as a matter of fact. The school, Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, has 11 security officers and is seeking to hire a new police officer as we speak. If you dismiss this by saying, "Of course they have armed guards -- they get Secret Service protection," then you've missed the larger point. The larger point is that this is standard operating procedure for the school, period....

  • Sidwell Friends’s surprising Pearl Harbor Day menu (Japanese food for the Obamas)

    A lunch that will live in infamy? That’s what at least one parent at elite Sidwell Friends (yes, Sasha and Malia’s school!) wondered upon seeing what the school cafeteria listed as its “Pearl Harbor Day” menu Wednesday: A heavily Japanese-inspired lineup, including teriyaki chicken and edamame (as well as more generically Asian delicacies like tofu, fried rice, fortune cookies and “oriental noodle salad”). A school rep told us this was just a fluke — not a meal intended to commemorate the 1941 Japanese attack on U.S. forces: The contractor that prepares school lunches randomly assigned an Asian menu to Dec....

    Sorry kids, President Obama wants to extend the school year by a month. "That month makes a difference," the President said Monday in an appearance on the "Today" show. And while "that's going to cost some money," he said, "that would be money well spent." Obama's interview kicked off a special NBC News series on education. "There's nothing more important than the issue we're talking about today," he said. Students in China, India and other fast-growing countries are already leaving U.S. students in the dust, he said. "They have caught up and now in some cases have surpassed us," he...
