Thanks! You have your child take the OLSAT/Bracken and then the DOE returns the scores with a list of schools you're eligible for. You rank the schools in order of preference and then the DOE does a lottery (this year by percentile) and assigns the kids. We were definitely lucky. Don't give up on private if that's what you really want, though. Some of them are not as married to the ERB. [ Reply | More ]

that is interesting. is the list of schools based on district or score alone. I am not sure if private is better for him because I do think he needs a small class size-but I am certain that at a school like NEST a child will get the attention he/she needs and taught to perform at the highest academic standard. was the first day ok?

[ - ] Alaska has long been the recipient of astounding amounts of federal funding. While Palin slashed pork requests in half during her tenure, the state still requested $550 million in Palin's first year in office. This year she has requested about $198 million—$295 per person—which is still the highest amount per-capita in the country, according to Taxpayers for Common Sense. And when she was the mayor of Wasilla, Palin hired an Anchorage-based firm to secure $27 million in federal earmarks for the town. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I forget how white Republicans are, and mean-spirited, and thin-lipped. I watch them and I think, is anyone buying this? Does anyone think we're better off today? That we're "winning" the war? Does anyone really think that executive experience trumps wisdom and intellect? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

yes, they do. that's the scary part. my sister is one of those "I love her". She doesn't read the paper and thinks she's "sassy" and b/c she said one thing about being a "friend" to parents with special needs kids, she thinks she's terrific. Also, there is alot of unconscious racism out there and some people don't want to vote for a black president. Let's face it...probably 90% of America doesn't delve into the issues and probably doesn't read a paper. [ Reply | More ]

If I were a Republican I would feel so hopeless and desperate after the convention, their party is so badly broken and has been so sadly directed. I actually do feel some pity for those who look to their leaders for security. A sorry state of affairs...plus Lindsay Graham is so repulsive... [ Reply | More ]
