Private school enrollment slowing...

Hard economic situations have led families to abandon a private school education according to the Washington Post. Parents are becoming less likely to spend the five figure sums a year to educate their children. What it doesn't mention in the article is the fact that these children NEED an education. Where will they go? To private schools with cheaper tuition? To public schools? If they come to the public schools, the school systems in this area are going to need to raise more money for education to make up the gaps in student to teacher ratio, building space, and transportation to name a couple of problems.
