2019 National Instructional Materials Adoption Scorecard and 2020 Outlook
Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.
Simba Information’s 2019 National Instructional Materials Adoption Scorecard and 2020 Outlook provides a singular look at sales by subject in particular states—those states classified as adoption states, which conduct statewide reviews and purchasing processes for instructional materials.
This report provides individual analyses of the Texas K-8 English language arts adoption results, as well as significant sales results from individual districts in the K-8 social studies and science adoptions in California, and a compilation of K-12 sales results largely in science and world history in North Carolina.
While Florida did suspend the adoption in 2019 while it develops new reading and math curriculum standards, some districts did go through with planned adoptions and Simba collected several such results. An overview of K-12 social studies purchasing in Tennessee also is provided.
This report features an all new Publisher Adoption Scorecard, which ranks the leading publishers by sales, and a look at the opportunities that will open up in 2020 through 2023.
The 2019 National Instructional Materials Adoption Scorecard and 2020 Outlook provides valuable insight into:
- the process of state textbooks adoptions
- the factors that influence sales in the school districts
- outcomes by publishers
- the broadening of the field of participants in adoptions.
