Company Overview

Honoring the NewSchools mission to transform public education.
Pearson is a proud sponsor of the NewSchools Summit; it’s a privilege to join educators, thinkers, and entrepreneurs who are committed to learning. We’re united in our belief that all people can improve their lives through learning. To make this belief a reality, Pearson has taken a bold step to measure and report its impact on learner outcomes around the world.

"Efficacy" means we hold ourselves accountable.
What is efficacy? Efficacy isn’t just effectiveness, and it’s not quite the same as efficiency. For us, efficacy is about making sure we have a measureable impact on improving someone’s life through learning. It’s about ensuring we are delivering the learning outcomes we set out to achieve. Efficacy and learning outcomes drive us and keep us mission-focused. We want to know what works—and share what we learn in an effort to improve learning for all people.
