HOUSTON - It looked like people were lining up for a Black Friday Sale, but instead it was parents, camping out overnight to get their kids enrolled in pre-kindergarten at Barbara Bush Elementary School.

“It’s a great school, and it’s the only way to get in,” said parent Jessica McKay. “Our daughter will get a great education.”

She and her husband took shifts waiting all night outside the school to make sure their child got one of 44 coveted spots.

Barbara Bush Elementary is a Texas Exemplary School.

“I believe it’s one of the top 10 schools in this area,” said Arun Sirvastava. “This is the best gift a parent could give to a child; the gift of education.”
