STAMFORD, Conn., May 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. K-12 schools are projected to spend almost $2.2 billion for core and supplemental reading instructional materials in 2017 as students continue to struggle to achieve reading proficiency, according to K-12 Reading Market Survey Report 2017, a new report from Simba Information.
"Despite the buzz around open educational resources and the digital transformation, a majority of the educators surveyed for the report said core programs developed by traditional publishers are the primary resource for teaching reading," said Karen Meaney, a senior analyst in Simba Information's Education Group. "Overwhelmingly, students using those programs most frequently access them as a paper-based resource."
This U.S. education market report provides information on the materials used in schools for reading instruction, assessment and remediation and highlights what educators are looking for when they make purchase decisions for those resources.
