Global Education - China Demand for US Content

"International demand for U.S. secondary education content has significantly increased as a result of the demand for U.S. college and university degrees. According to the Institute of International Education, the number of students worldwide pursuing higher education degrees from countries outside of their home countries grew from 3.0 million in 2005 to 4.3 million in 2011, and is projected to reach 8.0 million by 2025. As a result, international high schools have implemented dual diploma programs which allows students to receive a diploma from their local high school and from a U.S. based high school.

The Company will leverage local partnerships in countries where there is significant demand for U.S. K-12 content to provide products to the rapidly growing market of international students.

In addition, the growth and quality improvement in online learning and mounting pressure on educators to boost retention and graduation rates have contributed to a substantial growth in online credit recovery programs that allow students to earn credits toward high school graduation. More than half of the school districts in the U.S. offer online courses and services because of their efficiency, low cost and flexibility. We have seen an increase in the sales of our Learning Institute language programs as a result of this growth, and we expect this growth to continue. Furthermore, we intend to develop and improve additional products to expand our presence in this rising market."

Education versus Learning

Education                                                           Learning
Process – pushed                                           Acquisition – pulled
Society driven                                               Personally driven
Imparting knowledge and skills                   Adopting knowledge and skills
Start and stop – an achievement                   Ongoing – a lifelong event
Formal                                                           Informal
Delivered from outside                                 Evolved from within
A set of standards                                         A view of surroundings
Teacher driven                                              Experience driven
