"The San Francisco Unified School District regrets that we are unable to offer your child an assignment to any of your Amended Choice requests because the school you requested are at maximum capacity for the 2012-13 school year. Please note that since you did not register at the previously assigned school, your child will not have an assignment for School Year 2012-2013."
I could not fathom how we had spent months of research, touring, blogging, debating and consideration to wind up with Nothing. We had "coded in" over 15 schools. My daughter's assignment school scores a 3 out of 10. Far from our home and not in the best neighborhood; I could not stomach the thought of stunting her future by enrolling her. Now we have lost that school too! We will continue to work the system, but clearly the system is broken. I feel broken.
At first I really didn't know what to make of the labyrinths. I had never actually seen one in person.
I expected a maze... maybe in a garden. There were 2. Not as large or 3-dimensional as I imagined. The path was non-branching. It ended in the center. There were no choices, just one way.
