An Obaman Education
Well, that was fast:
The Hempstead Union Free School District board voted unanimously Thursday night to rename Ludlum Elementary School as Barack Obama Elementary School. The change went into effect immediately, school officials said Friday.
Officials for the Long Island district say they think the school is the country’s first to be named after the first black president-elect, although similar efforts to rename schools, parks and streets are under way elsewhere.
Although it would probably be yet another statement that others will declare beyond the pale to state, it’s difficult to ascribe this recognition to much more than the color of his skin. The guy hasn’t done anything, yet!
Well, he has chosen a school for his daughters:
Now we learn that [DC schools chancellor] Rhee’s schools aren’t good enough for Obama’s children: The president-elect has chosen to enroll his girls at Sidwell Friends. This is nothing new. The elite opponents of school choice routinely keep their children out of public schools.
Word on the dog is forthcoming, but I’m sure there’s a kennel or two already researching the process of changing their names.
