So....We Get a Refund Now?
On one hand, this justifies Rahm closing 50 schools.
- Chicago Public Schools’ official enrollment dipped below 400,000 for the first time in years, the district announced Tuesday, having lost nearly 4,000 total students from last year.
CPS reported its enrollment, counted on the 20th day of school at 396,683, or about 3,800 fewer students than the 400,545 enrolled in the 2013-14 school year at every kind of school. Ten years ago, the district had nearly 427,000 students enrolled across neighborhood, charter and contract schools.
Serving less and less students, but costs keep going up and up. Sounds like a broken economic model that might lead into a financial death spiral. You know, like Detroit.
