(SHREVEPORT, La.) — With each passing year, fewer and fewer children attend Caddo Public Schools. 

Based on enrollment figures from the Louisiana Department of Education, 3 Investigates found that while many larger parishes in the states are seeing more students in their public schools, the numbers are steadily declining in Caddo Parish.

“Except for my daughter in (Caddo Middle Magnet), I’m done with Caddo. We will not be going back at any point,” said Felicia Moore, a mother of three.

She was one of dozens who responded to a post in a Facebook group geared toward mothers in the Shreveport-Bossier City area. 3 Investigates made the post, looking to find out if parents pulled their kids from a Caddo Parish school to educate them elsewhere, and why.
