Four million students are currently enrolled in adult education programs. Another 32 million need help developing basic skills. An estimated $10 billion is spent each year in the market. And there’s a growing appetite for flexible, tech-based products. But there are also many pitfalls if K-12 providers don’t take the right approach. In this webinar, we look at the key strategies companies need to think about before they consider jumping into adult education market─and what mistakes they need to avoid. We’ll look in-depth at burgeoning areas of demand, where the needs of adult-focused programs are headed, and how companies can make their mark.

In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief’s editorial team will present new data and analysis from school districts on what parents – in their new roles as at-home instructors – need from companies in the COVID-19 era. We’ll draw from original surveys of district officials in which they were asked about their interactions with families, and the kinds of support and academic resources parents desperately need now. We’ll also break down EdWeek Market Brief’s recent reporting and research on where schools are on the path to reopening, and what kinds of help districts say they need in specific area, as they cautiously set plans to bring teachers and students back. EdWeek Market Brief’s editorial team will specifically present survey data on the following topics:
    1. What product features and support do parents – who teachers need to engage in students’ learning – need from companies?
    2. Updated survey results on districts’ biggest purchasing priorities for the remainder of this school year – and next.
    3. Districts’ biggest purchasing needs in curriculum, as they plan for school reopenings; and
    4. A look at district officials’ early thinking about how they might attempt to create learning environments for reopened schools.
    This webinar is the fifth in EdWeek Market Brief’s COVID-19 briefing series. Our editorial team will take your questions about our research and our reporting on where things stand and states and districts, and where things are headed for K-12 systems and the companies tasked with meeting their most pressing needs.

This webinar is a rebroadcast of an event that originally aired on Dec. 1, 2016. Demand for educational products and services in China has taken off, as the country's economy has continued to strengthen and evolve and its schools and families have demanded new academic products and services. Private education in China, and private academic services outside of China's government-run school system, have fueled new opportunities for companies from the United States and other countries. Where do the greatest opportunities exist for companies, and how can vendors establish a foothold there? In this webinar, we look at which areas of the Chinese education system are poised for the biggest growth, and how companies can crack the market to find their niche.

In this quarterly briefing, EdWeek Market Brief Publisher Maurice Bakley and Managing Editor Sean Cavanagh will break down the results of two exclusive surveys of education businesses conducted by EdWeek Market Brief in April and July. For business leaders, investors and others who are interested in the “state of the industry”, please join us as we discuss a variety of insights around the health and prognosis for K-12 Ed Businesses. Among the survey topics we will address:
    • How the coronavirus has affected companies’ current sales, near-term revenue expectations, spending plans and staffing across a variety of departments
    • What pricing strategies companies have chosen, how long they will be running those strategies
    • Companies’ timelines and success for converting district buyers from free materials during COVID to paid offerings
    • The biggest barriers vendors have faced in connecting with districts — and how they’re breaking through
    • What role federal programs like PPP have played for Education Businesses
    • And more…
    We look forward to sharing these survey responses from company representatives – many of them CEOs, VPs, and directors – whose businesses specifically serve the K-12 market and placing them in context with the reporting we have done on these issues on EdWeek Market Brief. Additionally there will be time for Q&A from our live audience. Note: Market Brief members will also receive access to an expanded data deck of the results for further exploration after the event.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced a sudden retreat from districts being willing and able to meet with companies in-person – for professional development sessions, on-site school visits, pilots of products, and face-to-face conferences. How close are school districts to returning to pre-pandemic norms? In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief will break down recent survey data collected from K-12 officials about their appetite for meeting with companies, now, at the start of this school year, and a year from now. Join us to learn about the following:
    • Which types of in-person meetings are moving forward, and which ones are still a no-go;
    • How differences in district policy vary by size of the school district, region of the country, and other factors;
    • Data on how companies’ plans to send staff to in-person events compares with district plan;
    • Insights on EdWeek Market Brief’s reporting and data about the instructional model (fully in-person, vs. hybrid) that districts intend to follow in the fall, and how that could impact company practices.

The American Rescue Plan, signed into law by President Biden last month, provides historic amounts of emergency financial relief to schools – roughly $130 billion, which school districts are expected to spend over the next three years. How are districts going to make use of this aid to address learning loss, priorities in professional development, curriculum, classroom assessment, technology, social-emotional learning, and other areas? This webinar will look at what the stimulus will mean for education companies working in school districts, and what K-12 officials will expect from those vendors. We will discuss and shed light on:
    • The results of a nationally representative survey of district officials on how they expect to spend the new stimulus funding
    • Additional EdWeek Market Brief original research on districts’ specific preferences for addressing learning loss – a core element of the federal aid – over the coming year
    • Insights from federal policy experts and district officials on rules on how the aid can be spent, and how the money is likely to be used by schools
