Seattle's Shrinking Kid Population

What would a true Blue city be without a declining children's population? The Seattle Times reports:
Seattle Public Schools enrolls 47,000 students — less than half the number it had 40 years ago — but operates 99 buildings, three-fourths what it had in 1965. The district hasn't closed a school since 1989.
Land-use restrictions,high taxes,and zoning restrictions make Seattle one of the most anti-family places in America.But,they sure like dogs there.
