Michelle Obama says black kids should keep going to 'bad' schools

At a White House gathering honoring women of the civil rights movement, Michelle Obama called education the "single most important civil rights issue we face today."  She then suggested that young people should just suck it up and go to school, even if they are "bad" schools.

It's on us to lift up our young people...to do everything we can to give our kids the resources they need, but here's the thing... it's on the young people themselves...that means going to class every day every day no matter what obstacles life may throw your way... go to school, go to the bad school that you have, go to school(laughter)

This from a wealthy woman whose children attend an elite private school surrounded by Secret Service agents.

Moreover, we might ask Mrs. Obama how there can still be "bad schools" when her husband has been in charge of the country for 6 years.  Barack Obama siphoned off $100 million from The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (AARA) to fix education with Common Core and Race to the Top bribes.

Failing inner-city schools have some of the highest per pupil expenditures in the country.  Taxpayer investment in K-12 public schools in 2011 reached nearly $632 billion.  The first lady's anti-obesity program, which included a video of best friend Beyoncé dancing half-naked in front of schoolchildren and hiring top chefs, cost us $4.5 billion.
