Chai is 4 years of age and will turn 5 in January (2012). She tests on a first grade level but is being denied an education

Chai tests on a first grade level but cannot attend public school due to her age. In NJ, a child must be 5 years of age by October 1st to begin kindergarten. Because Chai does not turn 5 until January, the NJ public school system will not allow her to attend public school kindergarten. Chai was taken to local private schools for assessment and has tested on a first grade level at all 3 private schools that were visited. These schools are willing to accept Chai as a student and place her where she belongs academically. Chai's family has been facing economic hardship due to recent layoffs and lack of full time employment opportunities.
Chai needs to be in school as soon as possible. Any donations to this cause would be greatly appreciated.
