High school enrollment is up in Detroit district

Nov. 1, 2013
Modest rise in numbers comes after decades of decline

After decades of sizable enrollment declines that have ravaged the district financially, the Detroit school district has found itself this fall with an influx of high school students. The Detroit News reports that the district has 1,844 more students in grades 9 to 12 than last fall, a boost of 14 percent. It’s a small number in a district that once held 300,000 students, but a feat in a city where more than 60 percent of children attend charter schools or suburban high schools across the city border.
