“Those headlines are no real surprise compared to what we’ve been experiencing here,” Jesse Coburn, a superintendent of Heuvelton New York Central School District, dijo “Sala de prensa de Estados Unidos” martes. “I think in this part of New York State, it’s rural, and we’ve been experiencing a population decline for really the last 20 años.”
Coburn said that most enrollments of neighboring schools have dropped about 20%.
“And that could be to our benefit because we have fewer students that we have to be teaching. I think in New York State, New York City has actually experienced a population increase. So I would expect that the problem is even tougher for them.”
