Year of establishment[edit]

I've altered the year of establishment from 1725 (when Longman's was established) to 1998 when Pearson Education came into being. (Longman's does need its own page, but I don't think it should be here) Dsp13 (talk) 21:18, 14 January 2008 (UTC)


I am confused. The introduction to this article says that Pearson Education is headquartered in New Jersey, USA. On the other hand, the outline box on the right reads its headquarters are in London, England! Could you please clarify in which place it is based? Thank you. (talk) 01:39, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Pearson the corporation is British. Pearson Education is a U.S. company under the Pearson umbrella. —PētersV (talk) 03:03, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

New Riders[edit]

There is no New Riders article, but it is called for often due to the many book citations for the label. I plan to create New Riders, and link it to the Imprints section. Then to create New Riders Press and point it to New Riders.sinneed (talk) 02:55, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Que Publishing[edit]

This was typed "QUE Publishing" in this article. This is not an unusual typo, because the logo uses letter all the same size, inviting confusion. I am setting up a redirect to point QUE Publishing links to Que Publishing. sinneed (talk) 02:57, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

How is Que Publishing pronounced? I thought it was KWEE but it occurs to me that it could just as easily be KAY, CUE, KUHH (as in French), or KWAY. If there's an authoritative source, it should go in the article. I've never heard it spoken, myself. Snezzy (talk) 18:00, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

MyLabsPlus--Collegiate Use (Pearson Education)[edit]

I know that colleges like the University of Alabama do almost all of their undergraduate math using the MyMathLabs/mylabsenterprise [1] website. When I took math there, a I took math classes that were taught completely using MyLabsPlus. The instructor and math lab tutors would help students with difficult problems.

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that Pearson Assessment & Information be merged into Pearson Education (this article) as it doesn't seem to merit its own article separate from this one. ElKevbo (talk) 20:54, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

LAUSD Dispute =[edit]

LA Times reported that LAUSD wants its money back from Pearson for non performance. Apple is also the subject of the dispute. Saltysailor12.46.103.194 (talk) 17:43, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Merge Pearson Education with Pearson article[edit]

The article Pearson Education states the company changed names from Pearson Education to Pearson making this a second article 

about the same conglomerate company. All Pearson articles should be merged under one name to avoid confusion mentioning the name changes and updating activities of their international divisions instead of using different defunct names. Much of info is outdated and from primary sources like the company itself creating an inaccurate biased article. Editors should contact the company PR office to get updated info not on the websites, I guess. Primofacts (talk) 21:34, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Merge with Pearson PLC[edit]

This article is a direct duplicate of Pearson PLC and contains many inaccuracies I would suggest a merge or deletion. Pearson PLC page contains more and more accurate information. LewisChu (talk) 08:37, 9 August 2017 (UTC)
