Let Sasha Finish School!

Let Sasha Finish School!

It's many parents' toughest decision -- whether to stay put to keep continuity for a child or move elsewhere for work or other reasons -- but in this case the decision is going to be made by the President and First Lady. According to the Wall Street Journal, the First Family may stay in DC after 2016 to let Sasha finish high school - breaking a longstanding tradition of former Presidents leaving immediately after their term(s) end. What do you think they should do, assuming Sasha wants to stay?  What would *you* do?  Me, I think I'd stick around -- maybe not in a super visible way but so that she could finish school.  Also, if she came back to Chicago to finish then she'd theoretically take some other kid's transfer spot at Lab School or wherever.

  • Could lead to twerkin'

  • Now, let's see....... Sasha's neighborhood school in Chicago would be Hyde Park High School, if I am not mistaken. If it's good enough for other teen-age girls in Hyde Park, I am sure it would be good enough for Sasha. No need to stay in D.C. Problem solved!

  • In reply to district 299 reader:

    Nope, not Hyde Park. Pretty sure it would be Kenwood...

  • Can anyone explain the purpose of spending a week taking the ISAT this year? The ISAT is not used for promotion, value-added, or school evaluation. It's worthless in CPS. Yet we are spending a week stressing out students and teachers and parents. A week of wasted time. The NWEA MAPS test now counts for everything. What happened to LESS TESTING???????????
