Chicago Public Schools enrollment plummeted by 15,000 students this fall compared to last year, the largest single-year drop in more than two decades, according to records released by the school system Friday.
Officials called the decrease from 355,000 students to 340,000 — a 4% drop — a “crisis” that was largely driven by a significant decline in new families enrolling in preschool programs and elementary schools.
Gee. Where have we seen this before? Of course!!! Owen's place:
Enrollment in public school districts dropped 3 percent from September 2019 to September 2020
It's not too easy to discover Milwaukee Public Schools' numbers, but they will emerge. We're betting they're worse than the overall State numbers.
