  1. This is my introduction to Pearson and my goodness, what a wonderful program. Everyone learns differently, and bringing the classroom virtually to anyone is such a great thing. I’m impressed that they offer classes from kindergarten on up through the professional level. They would be a blessing to students of any age! x

  2. K-12 is already in my country and I must say that there’s a huge impact to our education. I assume that it also did significant changes in India just like in the Philippines. Virtual studying is hassle free to parents who wants to monitor their children’s studies.

  3. Such good news! I am familiar with their educational programs and software and I applaud the effort they are making to reach more kids around the world. Kudos!

  4. This is great to know. I’m always a fan of programs out there that will help people learn. I know virtual schools are becoming more popular.
