Sunday, July 01, 2007

Enrollment in Oregon’s private kindergarten through 12th grade education facilities grew by 12% from 36,718 in 2001 to 41,032 in 2006. In contrast, public school K-12 enrollments grew by only 2%, adding 10,464 students in the same time period. Students in private facilities constitute nearly 7% of all school enrollments in the state’s K-12 schools. Within private pre-K-12 facilities, 23% of students are pre-school or under, 53% are in kindergarten through 8th grade, and 24% are in high school. In all private education — including post-secondary — payroll employment grew in Oregon from 18,950 in 2001 to 23,276 in 2006, an increase of nearly 23%. The industry provided over $650 million in payroll in 2006. Statewide, 36% of private education employment is in elementary and secondary schools, 36% is in colleges or universities, and the remaining 28% is employed in vocational, technical training and educational support services. The counties with the highest average employment in private education are Multnomah, Washington, Marion, Yamhill, Clackamas and Lane.
