Motivational speaker Dr. Paul Wichansky told his story of triumph over disability at an assembly with the Sussex County Charter School students. Gray (D) said the growth is evidence that the citys long-struggling schools are improving and attracting new students, showing that the District is a great place for young families. State Superintendent of Education Jesus Aguirre called the figures a positive indicator of the impact of our reform efforts. The school systems enrollment peaked at about 146,000 in 1967 and fell steeply for decades before increasing in 2010. Enrollment has held more or less steady since. This years uptick comes in the wake of Schools Chancellor Kaya Hendersons decision to close 13 under-enrolled schools in June. Activists and some lawmakers had feared that move would push more students into charter schools, eventually leading to further traditional school closures. Henderson has said that enrollment trends will be one key way to judge the school closures, which she argues ultimately will strengthen the system. The figures are important because schools are funded based on enrollment.
