Allison Benedikt of Slate published “a manifesto” decrying the Obama’s as bad people, titled: “If You Send Your Kid to Private School, You Are a Bad Person”
Read it for yourself, the premise is a simplistic revelation of liberal guilt. The idea being because good parents sacrifice and send their kids to good private schools instead of public schools they are depriving the public schools of good dedicated parents who will work to hold that school accountable. The reason public schools are failing is because good students with responsible parents abandon them. She claims that yes your kid will not get as good an education for a few generations as they could but so what, because you’re a good parent they will do fine. It’s unfair that the public school is deprived of good students with good parents. Benedikt says, “You want the best for your child, but your child doesn’t need it.”
Simple liberal logic, society’s needs for good parents and good student as models in public school outweighs a family’s needs and desires. Liberals simplistically believe that public education equals strong society and that all people have a duty to society greater than to themselves and their families. It’s simply unfair that your child has parents willing to sacrifice and make sure your child gets the best education they can and other children don’t, so to make things fair she is trying to guilt you into sending your child to public school.
Of course this is sheeple speek, to guilt the middle class. In reality you know that this isn’t true and that liberal in power don’t believe it to be true either, just look at liberal leaders, specifically the President of the United States, Obama. His kids don’t go to the local public schools in DC. Imagine how much safer a public school in DC would be because of the necessary Secret Service that would be there to protect Obama’s kids. Imagine how much better the educational opportunities would be for all the students of the DC public school would be if Michelle Obama was a member of the PTA. The Obama’s deprived Washington DC public schools the benefits of having their children in public school.
The Obama’s actions speak far louder than words. They know public education in DC sucks, and as such their children will not be exposed to the violence and culture that has resulted on one of the most expensive and poorest performing public school systems in the USA. It’s clear they don’t care about the community they live and as Allison Benedikt of Slate claims, they are Bad People.
