Part of the proposed increase in state education spending is due to higher enrollment,

a record high.

A. enrollment, since the number of students in public schools have grown steadily
since the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, are at. - "the number" is singular, should be "has grown...is at"
B. Enrollment, with a number of students in public schools growing steadily
since the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, reaching. "a number...growing steadily doesn't make sense in this context
C. Enrollment: since students in public schools have grown steadily in number
since the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, have reached. last clause is unclear: (students) have reached a record high. should be the number of students that has reached a record high
D. Enrollment: the number of students in public schools has grown steadily since
the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, has reached. looks good, both "has grown" and "has reached" are singular
E. Enrollment: students in public schools have grown steadily in number since
the mid-1980’s and , at nearly 47million, are at same problem as 'c'

I think it's 'd'.

A. enrollment, since the number of students in public schools have grown steadily
since the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, are at. [the number of students is singular and requires singular verb – “has” – eliminate it]

B. Enrollment, with a number of students in public schools growing steadily
since the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, reaching. [Preposition “with” correctly adding information to main clause but overall is not parallel – part of … is due to and reaching … - eliminate it)

C. Enrollment: since students in public schools have grown steadily in number
since the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, have reached. [the mid-1980’s singular – eliminate it]
D. Enrollment: the number of students in public schools has grown steadily since
the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, has reached. [hold it]
E. Enrollment: students in public schools have grown steadily in number since
the mid-1980’s and , at nearly 47million, are at [the mid-1980’s singular – eliminate it]
