Portland schools

Anyone else in the throes of lottery hell? My dd starts k next year and I have no idea where I even want her to go, much less what she could get into. Our neighborhood school has a Spanish immersion program, so if she gets into that, she'll probably go, but we're applying everywhere so we have backups in case she doesn't. I just find myself wishing I lived in some small town with only one school and no choices so I could just send her without having to think about it.

I know exactly what you're going through. My oldest dd (of two), is turning 18 next week. We had a very traumatic time dealing with those horrendous lotteries. Truly awful. They put parents and kids through the worst time....and if the poor kid doesn't get in, if it's a school they wanted to go to, it's just really lame. Portland is really cool, but that lottery system needs work. I feel your pain.
