Roughly speaking, San Francisco has approximately as many children aged 0-6 as they "should" given their adult demographics, and half the older children. The likely culprit is public school desegregation policies, which result in schools that are excessively far from home. Parents have to choose between making their children endure an hour or more of commuting each way, homeschooling, or moving out of the city.

I don't blame them at all for moving out at that point.

It's also worth noting that San Francisco is not one of the metro areas mentioned in the article.
