Conway Faces An Education Battle As She Plans Her Move To Washington


Kellyanne Conway may be facing a tougher battle than helping President-elect Donald Trump get to the White House.

New reports say Conway has been telling her friends that it has been difficult for her to find a school in Washington, D.C. for her children. Conway will be a special counselor in the Trump administration and is moving to Washington.

Conway has four children.

According to a report in the New York Post, Conway told fellow parents at the Elisabeth Morrow School in Englewood, N.J., about her difficulties. Conway, who currently lives in New Jersey, has twins attending the private school.

“Kellyanne is asking everyone with connections to DC schools for help,” the Post quoted a parent as telling it.

However, when Page Six asked Conway about the reports, Conway characterized the issue differently.

“I would not characterize myself as ‘worried’ so much as amused by the silence and sighs on the other end of the phone when friends and allies have made preliminary inquiries on our behalf,” she said.

Conway said that private schools talk about “diversity” and “open-mindedness.”

However, she said, “For some, there is a comfort in sameness.”

Conway said she was being supported by a “flood” of offers of help from people of both parties.

President Barack Obama’s daughters, Malia and Sasha, have been attending Sidwell Friends School, which was also attended by Chelsea Clinton when her parents were in the White House.

Private schools are usually the option for high-ranking governmental leaders, and not only for security and privacy reasons.

The Washington, D.C., public school system currently has a high school graduation rate off 69 percent, which means roughly a third of its students never graduate from high school. The national high school graduation rate is about 82 percent.
