    Pearson e1 pulling out of the MIS market??

    I've just heard Pearson e1 are pulling out of the MIS market. Can anybody confirm? Two of the schools I support use e1 primary and obviously it's going to be a big mission to change mid year.

    Thanks
    Terry

    From some of the horror stories I've heard, the majority would use it as an opportunity to celebrate!

    Not heard. Can't you ask your schools they should be first to know.
    Pearson would have measures in place for continuity.
    I can't imagine they are ditching the sector maybe just the UK market.

    My schools have not been notified yet, as I understand it. This has come from a local school in North London that uses e1.

    Our schools in tower hamlets were told earlier this week that Pearson Education Limited will be withdrawing their e1 product from September 2014.

    Interested in what they are saying, and what the plan is, i.e. will they keep up support, what do they suggest in terms of changeover etc.
    I guess PowerSchool is still gonna be around - it's pretty popular out my way.

    Once the letter is public and outlines what the plans are I'm sure the details will be shared more freely.

    It only affects E1 in the UK, not Powerschool

    Yeah I just meant they're ditching the UK not education MIS
    I guess it wasn't doing well.
    Or it could be a cunning ploy to make everyone shift to PowerSchool
    Anyhoo it's a great time to Aspenize. If only there was a list somewhere that showed each school and what MIS they had so you could start the email blast ....

    That should say who says there isn't such a list... Who says I'm not aware of such information

    I don't believe there are such plans to bring powerschool over... Do an Aspen as it were. Think it would be a harder graft for them. Remember that the founders of Aspen built Powerschool back in the day, so know a little about it
