How possible is going back to school as a single parent. Straight up; I need to know everything. How much did having children affect your attendance and grades and how did school change your relationship with your kids? Did you pass? Was it worth it? Would you recommend it?

I am young. I have 4 kids under 10, 2 are special needs. I am on government aid to support us and its quite possibly the most horrible feeling and biggest hit to my self-esteem to be one of those 'single moms on welfare' that all of society loathes. I hate barely scraping by and accepting donations for clothing and Christmas presents. I'd like a bright future for myself and my kids where I can support us and be a good role model for my kids in the process.
