ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES EPIDEMIC AMONG EDUCRATS

Filed at 7:05 am under by dcobranchi

It really is an occupational hazard brought on by all that self-back-patting:

For the first time since 2001, the Wichita school district has gained students over the previous fall.

The district’s unofficial enrollment as of Tuesday was 48,865 — up 47 students from last year.

…”At a time when urban districts across the country are experiencing enrollment decline, our continued strong enrollment speaks to the high-quality education and safe school environment we provide students in the Wichita public schools,” superintendent Winston Brooks said Friday in a news release.

…”What we are seeing at Stucky is that kids who had not been part of the district because they were either home-schooled or in private schools came into the district because of our program and high-quality staff,” Johnson said.

A 0.1 percent increase following years of decline does not a trend reverse. In fact, I think they probably would have continued on their death-spiral were it not for a special circumstance.

Woodman and Allen led all elementary schools, gaining 103 and 94 students respectively.

Johnson attributed Woodman’s increase, in part, to the growing enrollment in its program for students learning English. Woodman and Allen also have new prekindergarten programs that allow 4-year-olds to attend neighborhood schools.

Ahh, “free” baby-sitting. Makes all those rehab sessions endurable.
