With an annual income of 17k we never needed a voucher for any of the
private schools our kids attended from k-prep. The expensive ones too. Ours
weren't the only poor kids either. A certain percentage of kids at each
school were on scholarship. Ya gotta apply tho.

I suppose that there have to be some exclusive and exclusionary schools out
there. Its such a common stereotype it must be true or have been. Maybe it's
an East Coast thing or something?
You are certainly a lucky person! But I don't believe that your experience
is the common one, other factors no doubt.
