The article discusses the business growth projection of corporate chairman Harold McGraw III of McGraw-Hill Cos. for the PreK-12 textbook industry. Accordingly, McGraw believes that the PreK-12 market will experience a downward growth of four to five percent for the rest of 2008. He attributes the downward trend to the ailing economy as school districts experience declining revenues and rising costs in fuel, food, and personnel.
