There are others, I'm sure. But currently, education nonprofits and researchers are developing materials to help educators, parents and students understand them. EngageNY.

New York State has become the epicenter of a major transformation in the $7 billion textbook industry that threatens the preeminence of publishing behemoths like Pearson.

Common Core standards shake up the education business

A few large companies have monopolized the business for decades, although lately, districts have begun to move away from printed textbooks. Now, the new Common Core State Standards in math and English are accelerating the trend as schools overhaul curricula to meet tougher academic guidelines. Small nonprofits, education technology startups, and companies that have never dabbled in producing educational content are stepping up to create learning apps and even full curricula that schools can use in addition to—or in place of—their old textbooks. New York has been the most prominent state to toss aside the old business model of relying on textbooks printed by the publishing giants. The large publishing companies, including Pearson and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, balked.

“What they got is not what we deliver,” Cohen said. Education Week. Published Online: March 4, 2015 The first round of a Consumer Reports-style review for instructional materials paints a dismal picture of the textbook-publishing industry’s response to new standards: Seventeen of 20 math series reviewed were judged as failing to live up to claims that they are aligned to the common core.

The reviews, released online Wednesday by the nonprofit EdReports.org, were conducted by small groups of teachers and instructional leaders from across the country. Math Programs: How They Rate on Common-Core Alignment. Based on market share and states’ recommendations, EdReports.org selected 20 math instructional series to review for common-core alignment.

Math Programs: How They Rate on Common-Core Alignment

(For reporting purposes, K-5 and 6-8 texts from the same publisher were considered separate series.) Small teams of educators scored the digital and print texts on focus, coherence, rigor, and usability. In addition to individual grade-level ratings, EdReports.org gave summative ratings for each grade band (K-2, 3-5, and 6-8). Eureka Math was the only program that met the expectations for alignment to the Common Core State Standards at every grade level reviewed. How Common Core is killing the textbook. BERKELEY, Calif. — On a sunny January afternoon, the heaviest things in six-year-old Miriam Foster’s backpack were her lunch box and her jacket, making it manageable for the kindergartener’s walk home.

How Common Core is killing the textbook

“She does it herself from here to home, and home to here,” said Miriam’s mom, Tawankon Foster, 31. Her light load was not unique. At Emerson Elementary School in Berkeley, California, the occasional library book provides some heft, but the 20-pound pack is a thing of the past. After adopting the new Common Core standards, Berkeley has become one of an increasing number of districts across the country to reject textbooks or workbooks — at least for some classes. The new Common Core standards for kindergarten through 12th grade were widely expected to be a boon to textbook publishers, making it easier to market the same books in the 40-plus states that have fully adopted them.

In Berkeley, officials went looking for the best new math curriculum for the new standards.
