Education, Training, and Library
Employment in education, training, and library occupations is projected to grow 5 percent from 2019 to 2029, faster than the average for all occupations. About 441,000 new jobs are projected to be added from 2019 to 2029. Student enrollment is projected to increase; therefore, postsecondary teachers and preschool, elementary, and secondary school teachers will be needed to meet the demand. Education, training, and library occupations, however, are affected by state and local budgets, and budgetary restrictions may limit employment growth.
