Every year Sidwell Friends School has X number of students who would make an appealing kidnap target for political crazies, major criminal organizations and rogue states. This is independent of whether the President specifically decides to send his kids there. Parents who choose the Sidwell School therefore pay $34,000 per kid (plus fees) to ensure new books and computers, keep mold off the wallpaper and Legionnaire’s out of the air vents and, also, to pay armed security to watch the front gates. Public schools spend about $10k per year per student. If we want armed guards in every public school, great! Put a line for it in the tax code. No doubt the NRA will jump right on that plan.
