Funding under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) program and greater competition among high school students for college admission have boosted demand for tutoring and test preparation services. In the five years to 2019, the tutoring and test preparation segment will continue to lead the industry's performance, but the trend of more students enrolling in discretionary services will likely boost revenue. Additionally, improving per capita disposable income will support this segment's recovery. However, profit growth will be hampered by a growing number of online competitors, which will significantly contribute to price competition.
This industry includes exam preparation and tutoring services, automobile driving schools and various other educational services.
