Data shows how disruptive the pandemic really is for students

The Greenville County Schools in South Carolina was expecting enrollment to increase by about 1,000 students this fall, continuing a recent pattern driven by affordable home prices and accolades for “livability.” But instead of hitting the estimate of 78,000 students, officials are predicting a precipitous drop to about 74,000, according to The 74.

The news is quite different for the John Adams Academy, a charter school with three campuses outside of Sacramento, California — a growing destination for families fleeing the high-priced Bay Area. The school now has 3,300 students, up from 2,400 last school year.
