Melissa Harris-Perry says children “belong to whole communities,” but sends her own child to a private school

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry recently said the following:

We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children. “Your kid is yours, and totally your responsibility.” We haven’t had a very collective notion of “These are our children.” So part of it is that we have to break through our kind of private idea that “Kids belong to their parents” or “Kids belong to their families,” and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility, and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments.

If she really believes what she said, then why does she send her own daughter to a private school?
