In November 2008, then President-elect Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama decided to send their two girls to Sidwell Friends School, an elite private institution. Unfortunately, this educational opportunity is far beyond the reach of most African American families. Indeed, of the five million students in non-public K–12 schools in the United States, only 5.8 percent are African American, whereas African Americans compose 14.9 percent of the U.S. school-age population.
