Well not sure about manhattan, this is the way I looked at it and was pretty straight forward.

Part of the proposed increase in state education spending is due to higher enrollment,
since the number of students in public schools have grown steadily since the
mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, are at 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 = singular
B. Enrollment, with a number of students in public schools growing steadily
since the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, reaching.
It confuses the meaning, with usually is used to denote actions happening concurrently. Like I brought him with me or He is with his friend right now. So here does it mean higher enrollment is different from increase in the number of students?...nope, it's a cause/effect relationship and with does not spell that out!!
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 number = singular
D. Enrollment: the number of students in public schools has grown steadily since
the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, has reached.
Correct!
E. Enrollment: students in public schools have grown steadily in number since
the mid-1980’s and , at nearly 47million, are at
The number = singular
