    in the end I think it would be worth it.

    If she distinguishes herself as a student, encourage her to apply to private colleges, even expensive ones. Often they are more able to come up with financial aid than public schools, especially for low income families. She may actually pay less going to a very expensive school because of it.

    Study for those SAT tests, take the practice tests over and over. Speed matters. Have her read lots and lots of books.

    If she doesn't get into a 4 year university she can afford, the community college route can be very successful as well. If it's not a path to success in your state, encourage her to move to another state for her education.

    There are opportunities out there.

    Good luck to you, and to her.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
