Horrible News on Education Employment

on October 4, 2009

Education jobs fell for the first time since 1959 –there were only three other years in the past 50 years where education employment shrank – and all of them were during periods of declining enrollment as the baby boom petered out.

The decline was -0.9%, or 121,000 jobs lost. As people lose jobs they flock back to higher education. Which will result in more competition in that area later.
