No one seems to know why the district had a sudden spike in Kindergarten enrollment this school year (2012-2013).

In any event, 2007 saw the highest number of births in the history of the United States, and those children began entering school last fall.

Then the crash hit, and it’s been downhill ever since. What a calamity our protracted depression has been, in every possible way.
