Stupid freakin state government!!!!
So the state is no longer funding all day kinder in elementary school. The schools are moving to a fee based structure. All day kinder at my son's school now costs $800 per student per year. I hate it, but there was nothing that I could do to change that. Then I found out that only four students have not enrolled for all day Kinder. I decided that is not acceptable. I am trying to get funding now for scholarships for the remaining students who can't afford it. I am really not happy with the concept of the poor students getting less education. Really REALLY not happy with it. I am the interim president of the Booster club for the summer. I have decided that if I am going to have to be the interim president, that I am going to scratch my itch. Getting the $3,200 is a whole 'nother ball of wax. I made some phone calls today and had two strike outs. I am going to keep trying. I do not understand how people think it is ok to leave four students out, just because their parents can't afford to make an $800 payment. I just need to find the right group to pitch to. I need ideas and they are not coming.
