Open Enrollment's Impact on the McFarland School District

Focus on Dane County: McFarland recommends limiting open enrollment.  (Wisconsin State Journal, 1/2/2015)
In fall 2013, a Madison School District report showed that 78 would-be Glendale students went to McFarland through open enrollment, and 20 more went to the Monona Grove School District — by far the highest number of students leaving any Madison elementary school.

And why are parents looking elsewhere?

Without knowing the racial make-up of the 98 students who attended other schools through the open enrollment program, I can't say how much part 2 has to do with the situation.
