Education Programs

Educational services is one of the largest industries. Most teaching positions, which constitute nearly half of all educational services jobs, require at least a bachelor’s degree, and some require a master’s or doctoral degree. Retirements in a number of education professions will create many job openings.

Job Outlook

Greater numbers of children and adults enrolled in all types of schools will generate employment growth in this industry. A large number of retirements will add additional job openings and create good job prospects for many of those seeking work in educational services.
