Please keep my son in your prayers. This fall he will be either starting Kindergarten as a homeschooler or will be attending a public school.
This particular public school we are considering is very good and teaches the way I would for homeschool and uses the curriculum I would (more or less). However, last year there were 40 Kindergartners, 32 of which got in to the school because of "sibling preference," meaning they had an older sibling who attends and for that reason they are allowed priority over other students. The eight remaining slots were determined by lottery from the pool of applicants. In this case, there were about 110 applicants for those eight spots. Sooo, the odds aren't good that my son will get in.
My husband and I are very torn about what to do. We have planned to homeschool before my son was even born, but this latest option is very appealing but with incredible odds of getting in. I'd appreciate any prayers.
