STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Education Market Research/Simba Information just released a new report titled K-12 Enrollment by Subject/Course & Grade, 2014-15 School Year. The data shows that the highest enrollment courses include Art and General Music at the elementary level, and Algebra, Spanish and Biology at the senior high level, each with over 3 million students enrolled during the 2014-15 school year.
For those planning to enter the K-12 school market for curriculum materials, this report will be invaluable. "Most new products will be aimed at a specific subject and grade span. It is critical to know the size of the potential customer base for that product, and this new report makes those numbers easy to find. And why take aim at a smaller target if a bigger, more lucrative one is available?" said Dr. Robert M. Resnick, president and principal researcher for Education Market Research.
This report identifies the highest course enrollment numbers at the elementary, middle/junior high, and senior high levels. These numbers can be plugged into product planning and marketing planning reports to help assess market potential and to estimate market shares of existing and new products and competitors. For those responsible for developing products and/or sales/marketing plans for K-12, this report is a resource which should be available on every desktop.
At what level of student enrollment does a school subject become an attractive target for publishers, manufacturers or marketers? There is no single answer to that question, but if 250,000 students is used as a hypothetical threshold, then Spanish, for example, is a very big target at all grade levels, French is above that target at both the middle/junior high and senior high levels, and German shows solid enrollments at the senior high level. Chinese, Italian, Japanese, and Russian are far below that target enrollment level. Similar information can be found in the report for all major Art, English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Music, Science, Social Studies, and Career/Technical Education courses.
