What this article fails to address is the why?
Presumably, the schools aren't growing smaller, so why is this happening? Is it because the kids are walking or riding bikes more? Is it because parents are driving their kids to school?
There must be a reason and the article fails to address that.

I went to a meeting where they discussed this. The key is: "And the district continues to examine ways to get more children attending neighborhood schools where they won't need to rely on school buses to get to class." Goldman stopped allowing transfers between schools so most kids go to their neighborhood schools.

They may be making less money, but it is probably an essential service for the families who are receiving free or reduced prices. School is not a for-profit business.
