School Scoop: Vision, Not Universal 4-Year-Old Kindergarten, Creates Positive Enrollment and Achievement for All
People are not enrolling their students in the Evansville School district for many reasons. 4K comes some where in the middle to the end of the list.
Because Evansville has been losing enrollment across the board for years, not just at the elementary level. It’s because of the administration at the school people are leaving including the teachers.
Evansville schools are not good schools in fact they struggle to be average. There are so many parents who drive to Madison every day that taking their kids to schools in Madison where they receive much better educations, and many more choices, the drive is nothing as they work in Madison. It makes switching districts very easy. So far our kids have counted 6 different kids at Madison West that used to go to Evansville, and that is just Madison West it would be interesting to know how many former Evansville school district students are at the surrounding Madison Schools.
PEOPLE are not moving to Evansville because taxes are sky-high and Evansville offers NOTHING. To get decent prices on grocery’s one must go to Janesville or Madison. Janesville is just a short drive down the road from Evansville . But why move to Evansville ? Poor schools, High taxes, No jobs, expensive stores.
Melissa spent a lot of time researching this article and it is excellent. It’s very interesting to see how 4k really did not do much for any of the districts except of course, Verona.
