More Pointedly on NYS/Pearson

New York state's strategy vis a vis Pearson has been to attack Pearson's core business by paying non-profits to develop open curriculum for the state (and beyond), while turning over to Pearson the decisive point in the process -- the tests -- in fact going out on a limb to do so instead of joining one of the two new multi-state consortiums. If the Common Core fails in New York, even if Pearson's tests are a leading cause, Core Knowledge, Expeditionary Learning, Common Core, Inc., and the other upstart curriculum writers have a lot more to lose than Pearson.
