Millions in fines have been levied as the result of a successful lawsuit against the Pearson Foundation which promotes education reform on behalf of its for-profit corporation.

Pearson is an education publishing and assessment service to schools and corporations, as well as directly to students.

Pearson is involved in the development of both Smarter Balanced and PARCC assessments for the Common Core standards.

Now if only they would banish the other consultants in the education ‘industry’ perhaps the taxpayers would not be fleeced and the money would be directed to where it’s needed — the classrooms.
