    Liz Matory is living proof that you can overcome a lifetime of Left-wing indoctrination. "Sidwell hid me from the 'real world' in many ways, but I love Sidwell Friends," the once and future congressional candidate writes of that Washington, D. C. institution in her autobiographical first book, Born Again Republican. "We had environmental science as a mandatory class in middle school." "We studied Latin American History a year before we studied U. S. History. I think our school had one of the earliest Chinese language classes in the region, which was phenomenal." "Diversity Club was routine and the Investment Club...

    D.C. police are investigating a report that a female student at Sidwell Friends school was raped Monday by a male student on the campus of the elite private institution. The report says the female student told police she was forced to have sex without giving consent. It was not clear where on campus the incident she reported to police occurred. A police report indicated the incident occurred Wednesday, but authorities later said it occurred Monday. The female student and the alleged attacker had a prior sexual relationship, according to the police report. A police spokesman said the female student is...

    US President Barack Obama will be moving out of the White House in 2017, but he will not be moving far. Mr Obama said on Thursday the family would stay in Washington while his 14-year-old daughter, Sasha, finishes her education at the elite academy, Sidwell Friends. "Transferring someone in the middle of high school. Tough," he said to an audience question in Wisconsin. It is not common for presidents to stay in the capital after they leave office. Woodrow Wilson, who served as president from 1913 to 1921, was the last.

    After having presented a budget to Congress that would phase out a school-choice program that allows a limited number of children to escape Washington, D.C.’s public schools, President Barack Obama delivered a weekly address today that said all Americans have a responsibility to make sure all children—not just their own—get a great education. Obama’s two daughters go to Sidwell Friends, one of the most expensive private schools in Washington, D.C. […] Obama’s address was titled: “Ensuring Every Child Gets a Great Education.” In 2003, Congress enacted a program for “opportunity scholarships” in Washington, D.C. These allowed some students in public...

    While many public school students complain about lunchtime mush that meets White House calorie guidelines, President Barack Obama's daughters are dining on gourmet meals at a posh private school in Washington. School kids have been moaning about tasteless fare local governments adopt to comply with first lady Michelle Obama’s war on the waistline and posting photos of the mystery meals online. The Sidwell Friends School, the $36,000-a-year private academy attended by Malia and Sasha Obama, also posts its menus on the Internet. The Daily Caller discovered that Sidwell students eat well. Thursday’s lunch included: potato sausage soup, firecracker slaw, California...

    The National Rifle Association is airing a television ad (and has on its website this four-minute video) that says the private school that President Obama’s daughters attend, Sidwell Friends School, has 11 armed guards. It doesn’t. In fact, it has no armed guards. My Post colleague Glenn Kessler, who writes The Fact Checker column, wrote about the issue here and quoted Ellis Turner, associate head of Sidwell Friends, as saying: “Sidwell Friends security officers do not carry guns.” Parents and students say they have never seen one either. The president’s children are protected by Secret Service agents, which is required...

    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...

    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, the Washington D.C. private school that both Obama daughters attend, was evacuated Thursday due to a suspicious package, police officials say. Araz Alali, a spokesman for the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, said that the scene is now clear and that there is no evidence that the threat was directed at the First Family. According to the Washingtonian, this message was distributed to the school's emergency alert system: "This is an emergency message from Sidwell Friends School. Due to a suspicious phone call, the buildings on the Wisconsin Avenue campus have been evacuated. We will notify you when...

    President Obama endorsed same-sex marriage Wednesday, just hours after North Carolina adopted a constitutional amendment to ban it -- one of 41 states where same-sex marriage is illegal. President Obama's declaration does not change any law, but it does inject a contentious social issue into the race for the White House. "For me personally it is important for me to affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married," Mr. Obama said. CBS News correspondent Norah O'Donnell reports Mr. Obama has often said he was in favor of civil unions for gay and lesbian couples and...

    The elite Washington, D.C., school where President Barack Obama's daughters are students is offering a surprising lunch menu on Pearl Harbor Day.

The menu is printed on a school calendar, which notes that Wednesday is Pearl Harbor Day.

    Sidwell Friends School is being sued for $10 million for allowing its staff psychologist to carry on an affair with the married mother of a 5-year-old student he was treating. James Huntington taught sexual education to sixth-grade students in 2009-2010 — the same year that President Obama's daughter Malia was in the sixth-grade at the elite Quaker private school — while having sex with Tara Newmyer, according to a lawsuit filed by her husband on Thursday morning.

    TEL AVIV – President Obama, who has refused to release his college transcripts, yesterday divulged his daughter Malia scored a 73 on a sixth-grade science test. Obama went into unusual detail about Malia's 73, telling a Wisconsin school audience his 11-year-old daughter recently "became depressed," explaining that in the Obama household "our goal is 90 percent and up" on school tests. Obama said Malia complained her test differed from the class science study guide but that after changing her habits, she scored a 95 on the next science test. He quoted Malia saying, "I like having knowledge." "In our household...

This would be the first question Gibbs would be asked. Will the Obama children hear this?
