STAMFORD, Conn., May 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- How to deliver instruction to elementary and middle- and high-school students in a COVID-19 world has superseded or amplified educational initiatives that educators and instructional resource providers have been working on.
How the instructional materials industry responded and will have to continue to respond is the primary focus of PreK-12 Instructional Materials Industry Competitive Analysis, 2020—a newly published report from Simba Information.
The report examines the initial strategic response by instructional materials providers to the immediate needs of schools, parents and children as they moved home. The report also examines the strategies companies took to preserve their own business health.
