Charts: Education Publishing Much Bigger Than You Think

ScreenHunter_08 Jan. 24 09.26
Still trying to digest Apple's recently-announced foray into the textbook market?  The education textbook business is big, notes Wired -- much bigger than most people understand.  The biggest education publishers in the world -- Pearson, Reed Elsevier, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Thomson Reuters -- are most of them much bigger than the better-known book publishers like Random House or Penguin (owned by Pearson).  They're bigger than AOL or the New York Times company.  Only multi-platform companies like News Corp and Amazon have bigger revenue or profits, according to the piece. Scholastic, which sponsors this blog, comes in at number 10.
