After her successful gig as campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway accepted a position as counselor to the president in the incoming Trump administration, but only because its hours and demands would allow the mother of four to put her children first.
What Conway may not have considered, however, is the daunting prospect of getting her kids in one of DC’s elite private schools, which also are likely to be extremely liberal.
According to Richard Johnson of Page Six, Conway expressed these fears last Thursday night to other parents at Englewood, New Jersey’s Elisabeth Morrow School, where her children currently attend.
Her twins, George and Claudia, were performing a concert with other students. Although Conway had experienced some “good-natured razzing from the left-leaning parents,” a source told Page Six that “after the concert, all the parents converged on Kellyanne, congratulating and sucking up to her. Kellyanne is asking everyone with connections to DC schools for help.”
Conway has already started looking for schools in DC, and told Johnson, “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.”
While the posh private schools’ handbooks and websites all preach “diversity” and “open-mindedness,” Conway said, “For some, there is a comfort in sameness.”
The most pleasant surprise has been “the flood” of offers of help from people of both parties.
Asked if she was also house-hunting in the DC area, Conway replied, “First things first.”
One would think a new job with an incoming presidential administration would open doors rather than close them, but then again we’re dealing with closed-minded liberals here.
