“I am 56 years old and a single parent/custodial aunt raising my niece and nephew who are 5 and 7. I have had custody of them for 5 years. I work as a nurse 3 days a week. I’m the head of household.
When COVID hit and schools closed, I got laid off for 3 months. It was very difficult for me to homeschool 2 children because I am not a teacher, but we did our best.
After a lot of research, I chose to send them both to a Christian private school. I believe they need this type of environment and teaching to progress.
With too many uncertainties in the public school system, we need stability so I can work to produce an income and we can focus on learning and moving forward.”
