San Francisco School Enrollment Plunges as Mostly White Families Flee District

Susan Berry, Breitbart, June 4, 2021

The San Francisco public school enrollment is plummeting as mostly white families are fleeing the district, a report at the San Francisco Chronicle said Wednesday.

According to the news report, more than 1,700 public school students have left the city’s district over the past year, with possibly a continued exodus into the start of the next academic year in the fall.

The drop in enrollment could lead to a loss in state funding of about $20 million.

The Chronicle noted a school budget report released Wednesday that found enrollment in the district at the end of the current year was 50,955, the lowest in decades, a drop that was more than three percent lower than enrollment at the end of the 2020 academic year.

A drop of 299 white students, or four percent, was the largest loss to enrollment.

The district’s kindergarten class is seeing a nearly ten percent decline from the previous year, with 3,504 children registered, a number that represents a loss of 374 children.

The Chronicle reported kindergarten applications have experienced a 55 percent drop from white families.


The district has experienced a turbulent year in a city that has seen a rise in crime and drug overdoses during the coronavirus pandemic.

However, aside from the city’s problems, the school district has also faced a lawsuit following its woke focus on ridding its schools of the names of American leaders such as George Washington and Abraham Lincoln{snip}
