Then, the Mayor of Chicago positioned himself inches from my face and pointed his finger directly at my head. He raised his voice and admonished me. How dare I ask where his children would go to school!Glenn Reynolds says:
"You've done this before," he said.
This was the Emanuel we had heard about, and it was one of the oddest moments in my 29 years of reporting.
And your kids’ schooling is his business, but his kids’ schooling isn’t any of your business. These people always seem to think that way.Sense of entitlement is the point, right?
Anyway from the NBC Chicago Ward Room blog we finally got an answer to the question of where the Mayor will send his school aged children:
Mayor Rahm Emanuel Wednesday told CBS that he would send his three children to the University of Chicago Lab School in Hyde Park and not to a Chicago Public School.
It's the same private school that President Barack Obama's children attended when he was an Illinois Senator.
Because he decided to keep his children out of Chicago Public Schools, Emanuel said that voters will have to make a judgment about his choice.
Emanuel revealed his choice of school less than 24-hours after admonishing an NBC reporter for asking the exact same question.
