Enrollment Changes in Atlanta Region's Public Schools
This Regional Snapshot examines enrollment data from the Georgia Department of Education (GA DOE) and finds that, like the region as a whole, the student population in the region’s public schools (K-12) is rapidly diversifying. In fact, between 2000 and 2010, the 28 school districts in the 20-county Atlanta region experienced a decline of almost 25,000 White students, compared to dramatic increases in Asian, Black and Hispanic enrollment.
The enrollment data also show that several school systems have experienced significant growth since 2010.
