ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decline of School Specialty guidance for fiscal 2012 because of slowdown in sales in Accelerated Learning in Greenville, Wisconsin. According to School Specialty president and chief executive officer (CEO) David Vander Zanden, the industry experienced a slowdown of orders for curriculum products in the late summer into fall, which negated all of the growth in the prior periods. In addition, revenue at Accelerated Learning declined 25 percent in the second quarter.
