Local school enrollment is declining. It's due to demographic changes, some say. Naturally, school officials worry this will mean less money for the schools since the revenue they get is based on enrollment. You never hear the end of it. First they need more money cause the classrooms are overcrowded. Then they need more money cause they don't have enough students. One thing's for certain: The schools will always say they need more money no matter how many students they have.
I think it would be in everybody's best interest if parents around here would join the Humboldt Homeschoolers and say to heck with the Education- Industrial Complex.
