Private school enrollment decline continues

Two years back, it was surprising to spot Kentucky's rapid decline in private school enrollment. In the graph above, the downward trend continues.  The 2% reduction over the last two years was slower than the drops ranging from 3% to 7% in each of the five previous two-year periods, but continues the pattern of losses.  Over the twelve years, enrollment went down by just under 20,000 and by 22%.

For a quick comparison, Kentucky public school enrollment grew by nearly 34,000 and 5%.
