Although enrolments at government schools are growing, private schools are nipping at the heels of their public counterparts. Despite the economic slowdown in 2008-09, private school enrolments have continued to grow, albeit more slowly. Nearly two-thirds of full-time equivalent school students (about 2.4 million) were enrolled in government schools in 2014. The share of students enrolled in government schools has declined over time, as preferences have shifted to private school education. Enrolment is measured by the school academic year, from January to December.
