Simba Information Releases Report on the School Publishing Market

Simba Information rolled out a new report, “Publishing for the PreK-12 Market, 2019-2020,” “which examines changes in market demand and how the publishing industry is meeting those changes.” The market forces shaping demands for instructional materials are identified in the report in categories such as statewide tests, digital supplements, and video. The report’s findings include the following:
  • There is renewed focus on having students capable of grade-level reading by third grade;
  • Workforce training and career and technical education are receiving renewed focus in statehouses and school districts;
  • Civics and civic engagement are burgeoning areas with plenty of room for growth.
  • Increased use of apps, games and maker-spaces for hands-on projects in classrooms has led to what teachers have called an ‘integrated a la carte’ approach that ties together data on student needs and resources to address those needs.

For more information, read the press release.
