NEA will take a formal stance against Pearson Education, Inc. and its subsidiaries because of their connection to the systematic unraveling of urban and rural school districts through their biased testing practices, questions and so-called full-service wraparound products like America's Choice. 

Rationale/Background

Pearson Education, Inc is a billion dollar company that has made money on the backs of educators, students, and districts through standardized tests that perpetuates cultures of failures of urban and rural schools.
