ABSTRACT
The article reports on the factors that contributed to the 2.5% revenue decrease at McGRaw-Hill Education in New York in 2008. It says that School Education Group (SEG) had a blunted result for 30% capture of K-12 state adoption spending, discontinued contracts, and declined custom tests to lower work volume. It mentions that higher education sales offered a modest revenue increase of three percent and digital products had doubled gains but contributed little in the overall revenue.
