I heard a theory the other day about the 1,000 + student decline at EPISD each year.
The district tells us that the drop is the result of urban sprawl–there are fewer kids living within the district. It would be interesting to see the numbers.
The lady suggested that El Paso has many families transfer in from out of town (twin plant staff, military) and that they have had experience with schools in other cities.
Her suggestion was that some of these parents don’t like what they see at the district and take their kids somewhere else.
We deserve better
