U.S. private sector education appears poised to rebound.

However, we believe private sector education has had a major impact on how traditional providers operate (e.g., greater acceptance of online education). Although annual growth slowed earlier this decade—owing to economic and regulatory issues, among others—we believe growth rates are starting to recover, though not to mid- to high-single digit rates seen in the sector’s heyday last decade.
