FEDERAL DATA: NYS public school enrollment down 6%

CAPITAL REGION (WRGB) — There’s a new problem being faced by public schools.

Federal Data shows parents are pulling their kids out of public schools in large numbers, leaving behind empty buildings and an uncertain future, especially when it comes to funding.

This recent report comes from the National Center for Education Statistics. For many states, including New York, it’s setting off new alarm bells. Nationwide, more than a million students left public schools from fall 2019 to fall 2020.

Many parents remember that time well, since it’s WHEN MANY SCHOOLS WENT VIRTUAL.
