Schools still struggle
As enrollment in Minneapolis and St. Paul schools continues to drop, schools struggle to find a way to survive.
Star Tribune reported a story about two North Side Minneapolis schools that are going to be restructuring because of their low enrollment numbers. Pioneer Press reported that St. Agnes in St. Paul is struggling to meet their budget and are in debt, suffering from a dropping enrollment.
Recently the Minneapolis school board voted to close 6 schools, one of them being nearby Tuttle Community School. The enrollment is predicted to continue to decline, and the school board will need to close more to come to a enrollment and capacity equilibrium. Most students are going to the suburbs or to charter schools, as many families are moving out of the city and into suburbs.
