A new report by the Brookings Institution and The 74 warns that thousands of school districts are at risk of closure due to significant enrollment loss.

The decline is widespread, with some districts experiencing a one-fifth loss in elementary and middle school enrollment.

Brookings Institution fellow Sofoklis Goulas, said, “Enrollment declines are everywhere.”

This trend is projected to continue, particularly in states like Oregon, New Mexico, and West Virginia.

Large metropolitan cities and southern regions have also seen declines.

According to the Brookings Report, “Other families left districts during school closures for private schools and charters. All of these factors add up to fewer school-age children attending traditional public schools.”

The situation has led to budget cuts, staff shortages, and challenges for traditional public schools, while charter schools have experienced enrollment gains.
