Sasha and Malia to Attend Sidwell Friends

Sasha and Malia to Attend Sidwell Friends

Saturday, November 29th 11:04am Dear Diary, I got so caught up in everything going on lately, I forgot to write that we chose a school for Sasha and Malia to go to! We decided that the girls will attend Sidwell Friends, the Quaker school. It’s too bad that they can’t go to a public school, but since the schools in the DC area are notoriously known as the worst in the country, Barack and I recognized that we have to put them in a private school so they can get a good education. Plus, 4 out of 10 children are of color, which we feel is important factor. I think that it’s detrimental for any child to attend a school with children of all one race. Moreover, Chelsea Clinton, Al Gore III, and the Nixon girls all attended this school, which means that the school understands the unique personal and security needs for prominent children. Finally, we agree with the Quaker values, and feel that they will help Sasha and Malia to become socially responsible and spiritually aware adults. The girls are looking forward to the new school, but I know they wish they could attend as completely normal kids. I admit, it must be difficult to have the Secret Service around all the time. Poor Malia, wants to be normal, but that just isn’t possible now that her father is President. Still, I’m hoping that she gets used to have the Secret Service follow her around. Maybe she can talk to Chelsea and see how she coped. I’ll have to mention this to Hillary the next time I see her… Yours always, Michelle
