Pearson would like to become education’s first major conglomerate, serving as the largest private provider of standardized tests, software, materials, and now the schools themselves. Public radio station KPCC reported that the company’s foundation subsidized attendance by educators, including some members of the bid committee, at a Pearson conference. In 2013 he published a report, The Good News From Pakistan ,” examining the positive results of his education philosophy—which has the uneuphonious name deliverology”—in that country’s Punjab region. The most comprehensive global review of research on low-cost private schools was published in 2014 by the UK’s Department for International Development—and it’s worth noting that Barber advised the agency on education in Pakistan at that time.
I think Pearson would be delighted to have as much clout as the critics believe,” says Bernstein’s Aspesi. Investment firm GSV Advisors recently estimated the annual global outlay on education at $5.5 trillion and growing rapidly. Barber has an answer for that too: government-funded vouchers to make private schools free to the poor. That said, even if the standards are changed, they are likely to be replaced by new standards—and Pearson remains one of the only players with the size and scope to handle large testing or curriculum contracts.
The Company’s North America school business offers early learning solutions that help educators and families teach fundamental math and literacy skills; elementary and secondary imprints publish school programs in reading, literature, math, science and social studies, and digital instructional solutions for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade (k-12), such as enVisionMATH and Miller-Levine Biology.

Fallon is also trying to make Pearson more accountable—only logical for a company that is helping to set the world’s educational standards. There’s an X factor too, harder to quantify: It could be that for-profit schools attract more parents like Nellie, who place more of an emphasis on education and whose children would therefore do better in any setting. Though Pearson generates approximately 60% of its sales in North America, they operate in more than 70 countries. The Company competes with Cengage Learning, McGraw-Hill, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, K-12 Inc and ETS.
