DPS enrollment shrinks to World War I levels

The Detroit News:

The preliminary tally showed enrollment dropped to about 88,000 this fall -- far below the 104,501 students counted last fall. It could constitute the largest one-year enrollment drop in the district's history.

If true, the News says "the drop could cost it about $52.6 million in state aid" and DPS will surely lose its first-class district status unless the state rewrites the rules.
