Fenty Twins Go Public

Mayor Adrian Fenty appears to be making good on his promise to enroll his twin sons in the D.C. public school system he's seeking to reform.

Although Fenty has refused to say which public school his sons will attend, several parents at Lafayette Elementary tell The Washington Post that the Mayor and his wife Michelle escorted at least one of the boys to the school as classes got under way today.

Lafayette is in Washington's affluent Chevy Chase neighborhood. The 9-year-old boys, Andrew and Matthew, previously attended a private Montessori school.

The family lives within the boundaries for West Elementary, but it's not unusual for D.C. students to apply to schools outside their neighborhoods.
