ABSTRACT
The article reports on the suspension of science textbooks orders in grades K-5 by large school districts in Florida. The suspension has sabotaged the revenue expectations of the publishers like Harcourt Science, which dominates the K-5 segment, having a 51.3% share of $37.6 million sales. The government has considered a plum adoption market in a light year across the board.
