Helena’s not one of your average Foulkes.
To be sure, Governor McKee’s rescission of his School Choice Week proclamation was a worrisome move independently of the underlying issue, so we can’t really fault Helena Foulkes, who’s campaigning for his job, for jumping on it.
That said, because the underlying issue is school choice, which seeks to expand the educational opportunities for all students, regardless of income or demographic group, it’s relevant to note that Mrs. Foulkes, herself, attended one of the most expensive private schools in the Ocean State, the Lincoln School. (Expensive, as in costing more than $40,000 per year for grades six and up.)
I’ve asked her campaign what school(s) her children attended or attend. If the campaign responds, I’ll let you know.
