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.
