PRAIRIE GROUCH  
GRAND PRAIRIE TX

In reference to the private religious schools, the
main obstacle to being able to fill the void is not
the quality of the instruction but the number and
size of the facilities. In an ideal world, there
would be several church schools in each community.
Vouchers may be a tool to bring this about.
My great grand daughter attends the North Hills
Preparatory school which is nationally ranked. Her
younger sister will be starting Kindergarten the
coming year. Lottery preference is given to siblings.
The North Hills school is a charter school and
admittance is based on a lottery system. Each parent
is expected to donate $500.00 per year. I think that
some fulfill this requirement by volunteering as
traffic police and other duties. I think that they
have a waiting list of about 2500. I drive about 33
miles a day to pick her up as both parents and grand
parents work.
I have another great grand daughter by another
grand child who has applied to a new Uplift school
in South Irving which is the same organization that
runs North Hills. So far, she had not won a place
in the lottery. It is a shame that a child has to
depend on a quality education on the luck of a
lottery draw.
