"Today I am more convinced than ever that this business is in good shape. In those seven years we’ve turned three companies in education, business information and consumer publishing into world leaders. We’ve put ourselves in pole position to benefit from a fundamental change in all our lives: the premium on skills and knowledge in a brain-powered world." - Dennis Stevenson, Chairman
"What is the value of knowledge? In dark places, knowledge puts the light on. Knowledge makes economic systems work, countries prosper, people succeed. But knowledge isn’t a universally available power source.
Today, only 30% of the people in the world can read. Only one in a hundred has a college education. Those who do can earn three times what someone who hasn’t finished secondary school can. That’s why an increasing number of children in the world’s most populous countries are in school: more than 60% of children in China; 50% in India; more than 80% in Russia; and 95% in America. This worldwide yearning for knowledge will electrify our future." - Marjorie Scardino, Chief Executive, Pearson http://www.larryblakeley.com/library_research_commercial/commercial_publishers_elibraries/pearson/pearson.htm,
