LONDON—Shares in Pearson PLC tumbled on Monday after the educational publisher said weaker-than-expected trading in the higher-education sector in North America weighed down on nine-month sales. In using the electronic files provided by the Publisher, the disabled student, the College Disabled Student Services Office, or other student official, will abide by the Copyright Law of the United States of America, as amended (17 U.S.C. Sec 101 et seq.) and the applicable code of conduct and policy of the requestor’s school.
Another mess involves a partnership between Pearson, Apple, and the Los Angeles Unified School District, which in 2013 announced a $1.3 billion project to provide an iPad, loaded with Pearson educational material, to each of the 650,000 students in the district.
Recognizing that government funding of public education is finite, the Foundation supports students and furthers this goal by supplying seed money to a broad array of projects generated by the teachers and administrators of the LBP community. To this end, the company is testing academic, financial, and technological models for fully privatized education on the world’s poor. In the 1920s, Pearson diversified, buying the Lazard investment bank as well as the Château Latour winery and the Madame Tussaud wax museum.
The company used its nonprofit foundation—led primarily by Pearson executives—to pay for education leaders to take expensive trips to such places as Rio de Janeiro, Singapore, and Helsinki as they were contemplating hiring Pearson to develop the materials for their states’ version of the Common Core.
