Welcome to Pearson. Around a decade ago, we set out to make this a learning company. (We said, a little too immodestly for my liking, that we wanted to become the world’s leading learning company).
We’ve made some progress along the way. But whatever we’ve accomplished, we recognize the wisdom in Alexander Pope’s observation.
We can’t stop at a little; there is so much more to do. Tens of millions of students still don’t even have the chance to go to school. Many more fall behind or drop out of education completely, as adults languish without the skills to realize their dreams.
