Edustructures is an enterprise solutions for managing and synchronizing education data systems with solutions based on the standard for interoperability in education, the Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF). Pearson has been the most creative and the most aggressive at taking over all those things we used to take as part of the public sector’s responsibility,” said Michael Apple, a professor of education policy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Today’s students want a better education – and we’re helping to make it possible by creating more effective, more engaging ways to teach and learn.
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. So in the Education system, an obvious function of education is to teach children the curriculum; e.g maths, English etc to prepare them for the world of work.
In addition to printed options, students can get their books on the devices they love through Pearson’s MyLab & Mastering products, Amazon, and more. Thus schools, by testing and evaluating students, match their talents, skills and capacity to the jobs for which they are best suited.
The higher those targets are, the more lucrative the deal appears to the university — and the more willing administrators may be to promise Pearson a cut of up to 60 percent of student tuition.

And universities continue to hire Pearson to manage online programs even though the company has routinely failed to hit its contractual targets for student enrollment. William Ethridge became chief executive of Pearson’s North American Education division in 2008.
