As schools open for the 2018-2019 school year, almost all states will have their accountability plans under the Every Child Succeeds Act approved by the U.S. Department of Education. That means states and school districts have a firmer foundation from which to approach how they want to deliver education in their schools. While there still will be adjustments, the approvals provide clarity over goals and, to some degree, spending priorities in states and districts. Some priorities were seen early in 2018 in the state of the state addresses by governors. After analyzing the 2018 addresses of 44 governors, the Education Commission of the States early in 2018 identified six top priorities across the states in both PreK-12 and postsecondary education. They are discussed within this report.

Simba Information projects the overall instructional materials market will grow at an annual compound rate of 1.3%. With the increasing availability of technology that can share video, sales of educational video are estimated to have grown in 2017. The demand for children to read literature and non-fiction text fueled growth in 2017 in the education trade book segment.
