If you have a child between the ages of 5 and 17, you can’t afford to send them to college in any of the four states.
In some cases, it’s as simple as enrolling them at a different school.
The most recent data available from the U.S. Department of Education shows that, in 2017, just 0.2% of kids in grades 3-8 went to a public college in their home state.
In Texas, just over 8% of those kids went to an accredited institution.
In Florida, it was 3.7%.
In California, it accounted for 2.5%.
In the District of Columbia, 2.1%.
The states with the most students enrolled at public colleges in 2017 were Arizona (20.6%), Texas (18.5%), North Dakota (15.6%) and South Carolina (12.7%).
But even if your child goes to a different state, he or she may still end up at an institution in another state.
The best way to ensure your child’s success is to have them enrolled in the same school they are attending at the same time, said Laura Schott, a professor of education at the University of Michigan.
If your child attends two different colleges, she said, it is better to go to both schools to ensure that you get all the resources you need.
“If your child is getting a two-year degree, he/she may not have enough credits to finish their degree,” Schott said.
If you are enrolled in a public institution, the easiest way to do this is to schedule the time of day you want your child to receive their college credit.
For instance, if your kid attends 3 p.m. and you schedule him to receive his credit at 5 p.l. that’s a good idea.
You can also schedule a time to be able to check in on them.
You will need to find the exact time for each child, but they will need access to the computer system.
The system is set up to accept any number of credit cards.
If the card has the appropriate amount of credits, you will be able send them emails, text messages, or even have a family member come to check on them after school.
If a child is receiving credits from both public and private institutions, you may be able request a “bulk credit” to pay for college in each.
If there is no money available, you should consider contacting a financial aid office.
“It may be that you’re going to have to do some research to figure out which school is best,” Schot said.
“You may need to work with a financial counselor or your state’s department of education to figure it out.”
If your children attend two different institutions, Schott recommended enrolling your child in a local college in the home state and making sure they know where to go if they need to transfer.
This will help to help your child get the college credits that they need.
For those who are not attending school, there is a few additional tips that can help your kid in the classroom.
Find a way to have your child visit other teachers and peers that you may need help with, Schot added.
For example, if you are having trouble getting an exam done or you are concerned that your child may have a learning disability, ask if the teacher is also a parent or sibling of the child.
She/he may be willing to help you, and you will receive extra help in terms of tutoring or learning skills that your student will use in the future.
If parents have difficulty communicating with their kids about what is expected of them in the world, ask them to help them to understand how they should behave in certain situations.
“One of the things that we teach in our class is that parents need to have their kids involved in all aspects of life,” Schowt said.
She suggested asking them to talk to their child about what they need in life and how they can help each other in certain ways.
“Parents should understand what it means to be a parent and what it takes to be healthy and happy,” Schote said.
In the end, Schowts advice is simple: Be a parent.
“Be responsible and give your child the best possible education they can get,” she said.

The bottom line is to make sure that you have the right resources in place for your child, and then work with them as best you can.
Schott recommends that parents talk with their child’s school counselor and their state’s school board about how to make their child more engaged in school.
