My child has special needs. The public school system is not the best place for my child to receive his education. My child has been in private school all his life and we struggle financially to keep him there every year. We are now at a point where we may be forced to place him in public school because we can no longer afford private school. We have discussed this possibility with our son. He cried and begged us to keep him in the school he is used to being in. This grant would save our son from experiencing grief and help him continue to receive the quality education this private school provides him.
