School Overcrowding and Growth by Board of Education (Video)

The following video was shot and edited by Danbury Video's John Neumuller.

The Danbury Board of Education talked about rising enrollment at Ellsworth Avenue Elementary School, Rogers Park Middle School and at South Street Elementary School.

Broadview Middle School saw a drop of 26 students from a year ago, and Rogers Park saw an increase of 88 students. Ellsworth had to add a new first grade class to cover rising enrollment, and Schools Superintendent of Schools Sal Pascarella said he is monitoring enrollment at South Street School closely.

Couldn't possibly be the illegals, could it?

well, considering the amount of illegals began declining when the economy started tanking and jobs started drying up...which also coincided with some local "anti-illegal" grandstanding laws being passed...and also taking into consideration that there are over 70-something different languages spoken in our school system...I'd say blaming (ahem) "the illegals" would be pretty short-sighted.

There are plenty of illegals and non Danbury residents attending Danbury schools. Plus who would want to go to rogers park?
