Liberals Love Their Kids, Not Yours
Rahm Emanuel, now Mayor of Chicago, is proud to announce that he cares too much about his kids to let them attend city schools. After all, they're owned and operated by the Democratic Party, which puts the needs of the unions ahead of those of children.
Leah, Ilana and Zach will be going to the same school once attended by Barack and Michelle Obama's daughters Sasha and Malia, the source said.
If I use my kids education in any political context I'd be less of a father than I want to be," Emanuel said. "So it's a personal matter. It's a private issue. It's a decision Amy and I will make as parents, not her as a mother and me as mayor.
That's something we can all agree on - what sort of man would Rahm be if he sent his kids to union schools just to prove a point?
Former Mayor Richard Daley sent his children to Catholic schools, even as he made it clear Chicago could not survive without vibrant public schools. Emanuel, too, has made the improving CPS a key focus of his young administration.
There's a lot of improving that needs to happen before people of means, even liberal ones, sacrifice their kids to the schools they make poor people send their kids to.
