San Francisco, CA — The family of four is becoming an endangered species in San Francisco.
The city has the smallest share of small-fry of any major U-S city. Just 14-point-five percent of the city´s population is 18 and under.
It is no mystery why U-S cities are losing children. The promise of safer streets, better schools and more space has drawn young families away from cities for as long as America has had suburbs.
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is determined to change things. He has put the kid crisis near the top of his agenda, appointing a 27-member policy council to develop plans for keeping families in the city.
