I need to return to work or find a way to supplement our family income in some way, so I decided I needed to put the kids in school. Disgusted with our public school, I checked into private schools only to find out that my kids do not qualify for the same grants and scholarships that my wealthier friends are eligible for all because my girls were not in public school for the entire previous year. Is this true? Is there no other way to qualify ? Do I have to subject my kids to this for an entire year? Why is this. I have written an called the State Capital and the White House but have gotten no response.

Well, I don't know about that, but I do know that homeschooled students qualify for and receive scholarships all the time.
