All Kids Invited to White House Easter Egg Roll, Provided They Attend Public School

I’m sure this was just an oversight:

(CNSNews.com) – The Obama administration announced on Tuesday it has reserved 3,000 free tickets to the annual White House Easter Egg Roll for students in D.C.-area public and charter schools, but not for children who attend private or parochial schools.

Why exclude children in private and parochial schools, asked the father of a parochial school student at Tuesday’s press conference where U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan and District of Columbia Mayor Adrian Fenty announced the ticket giveaway.

“These tickets are from the White House to public schools, and we’re appreciative, but there may be other things unrelated to this press conference,” Fenty responded. “That’s a great question.”

“That’s a great question, and I’d answer it if your kids went to a public school.”

So does this mean that Obama’s own daughters won’t be invited to attend the Easter Egg Roll?

In other news, this year’s Easter Egg Roll might not be private-school friendly, but it is going to be environmentally-friendly. Yes, that’s right! The days of the asbestos-filled, coal-powered eggs and the environmentally hazardous egg-rollers that run on diesel fuel are coming to a merciful end.

It’s about time. Just so you can see what a difference it makes, here are the environmentally-friendly eggs that will be used at Obama’s Easter Egg Roll:

And here are the eggs that George W. Bush used in 2002:
