Pearson Education is a company that designs “education products and services to institutions, governments and direct to individual learners”. They have 40,000 employees in 80 countries. “Pearson is listed on the London and New York stock exchanges (LSE: PSON; NYSE: PSO). In fact, Pearson is one of the few companies to have been a constituent of the FTSE100 ever since the index began in 1984. However, though the name has remained the same the company behind it has changed beyond all recognition”.

The three main changes the company cites are as follows: (

  1. “A corporate focus on ‘education in the broadest sense of the word’, a strategy of becoming the world’s leading learning company with heavy exposure to the growing global education market.”
  2. “A transformation from book publisher to digital services company.”
  3. “A significant expansion into fast-growing developing economies including China, India, Africa and Brazil.”

Pearson is a former member of the Advisory Council for the United Nations Global Compact. They continue to be a member. “Participation in the Global Compact continues to provide an important framework for Pearson as we develop and grow, and are pleased to continue our support and engagement,” Robin Freestone Chief financial officer (and Board member responsible for corporate responsibility)

Remember, the Gates Foundation also used the United Nations as one vehicle for funding the development and implementation of Common Core in the United States.

Pearson appears to have a number of investors worldwide with one of the largest financial contributors being the Libyan Investment Authority that holds 26 million shares. According to the Financial Times of London, the Libyan Investment Authority was founded by Libyan dictator Muammer Gaddafi’s son Seif al-Islam with shares now belonging to more than five members of the Gaddafi family. In the Middle East; Turkey, Saudi Arabia, CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood have invested heavily in Pearson Education.

Pearson Education claims they are a public company in a free market and they have no control over their shareholders. In other words, they didn’t mean to fund terrorist activities.

“Muslim Brotherhood documents seized by the FBI and presented at the Holy Land Foundation Trial in Texas revealed a plan by the Muslim Brotherhood and their subsidiary organizations like CAIR to penetrate and indoctrinate American K-12 students.”

These documents were believed to be the Muslim Brotherhood’s manifesto in North America. You can view the documents from the Holy Land Foundation Trials by visiting the following links: (Note: the documents are provided in Arabic and English. You will need to scroll down the document to get to the English translation.)

In May 2014, Pearson Education took over teacher certification in New York State, because the state had to implement “reforms” to compete for federal ‘Race to the Top’ dollars. The evaluation system known as the Teacher Performance assessment (TPA) will be solely administered by Pearson Education. New York State teachers will be entirely evaluated by Pearson Education.

University programs for teacher training are being subsidized by Saudi Arabia. Middle East Studies (under Title VI of the Higher Education Act) which entails designing lesson plans and seminars on the Middle East for American K-12 teachers are being distributed without oversight despite federal funding by the United States government. Saudi Arabia is funding the foundation creating the materials and training of the teachers and coordinators of these programs.

Pearson Education did not miss a chance to be a part of this exciting training, because there were higher education dollars up for grabs. You can view their website specifically designed for Middle Eastern studies at the following link:

Pearson Education is involved in academic research and influencing governmental policy. Pearson Education along with Cisco Systems, IBM, Intel, and the Gates Foundation throw all kinds of money at “non-profit” organizations in an attempt to effect policies that will lead to profits for their companies. Common Core was designed and copyrighted by The National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). You find Pearson Education listed as one of the many donors to NGA. Pearson Education is also listed as a business and industry partner for CCSSO.

The U.S. spends more than $632 billion a year to educate children ages five to 18 (approximately $12,608 per student). Education, including college and mid-career training, represents nearly 9 percent of U.S. gross domestic product. That is more money than is spent on energy or technology.
Pearson Education may claim they have no control over whether their stock is funding terrorist activities, but consumers and the United States government can control whether they purchase Pearson Education materials. We exercise our consumer rights in a free market all of the time.

Parents have rights too. The following was written by an Ohio teacher, “Refusing to allow your child to participant in state testing is a parental right guaranteed by the 14th amendment and broadly protected by the Supreme Court (see Meyer and Pierce cases). The Supreme Court has repeatedly held that parents possess the “fundamental right” to “direct the upbringing and education of their children.” Furthermore, the Court declared that “the child is not the mere creature of the State: those who nurture him and direct his destiny have the right coupled with the high duty to recognize and prepare him for additional obligations” (Pierce v. Society of Sisters, 268 U.S. 510, 534-35). The Supreme Court criticized a state legislature for trying to interfere “with the power of parents to control the education of their own” (Meyer v. Nebraska, 262 U.S. 390, 402.). In Meyer, the Supreme Court held that the right of parents to raise their children free from unreasonable state interferences is one of the unwritten “liberties” protected by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment (262 U.S. 399).”

You can use your voice as a parent and refuse to allow your child to be used as a tool for funding terrorist activities. Pearson Education may not be the only unwitting player.

    If I had Kids, I would send them abroad for education in Russia

  • Jim McCormack

    It’s Communist Indoctrination.

  • common core is now funding TERRORISTS.

  • actually it’s the other way around – the Mus. Bro. funds Common Core.

  • wabby99

    Pearson is also rewriting the international test (PISA) to align with Common Core. This project is due for market by 2018. Now what more do you need to know. Common Core is not an American agenda folks it is a global agenda. Bill Gates signed an agreement with UNESCO in 2002 to deliver universal education. Follow the money and the power. Education reform has NOTHING to do with better education for our children. In fact it is just the opposite. It is an agenda or indoctrination to create citizens of the world. No more loyalty to God, country or family. Loyalty to the collective. Sound familiar. If it doesn’t you better brush up on some history because history is about to repeat itself.

    Subsidized training of our teachers by Saudia Arabia??? And no over site???? Who do you think is attempting to brainwash OUR country?????????? Wtf? Pearson bought out so many publishing firms over the last 20 yrs… This has been building for along time….don’t try and sugarcoat ” common core” to ME!!!!!

    • Pearson is moslem owned, they write and publish the content.

  • Poet K A Steffek

    So glad my state refuses to use the Communist common core, we voted it OUT!

    • wabby99

      Sorry but NO state has gotten rid of Common Core. Rebranding is what you got. Do some homework before you make uninformed comments. Even Texas has Common Core thanks to RTTT-D.

      • Exactly right

      • vivian greer

        where in texas? my district doesn’t teach it.

    • What state, almost all states I am aware of have rebranded it, but it is still IslamoMarxist toxic content.

    The top ten shareholders of Pearson are:
    1. UBS Securities LLC 12,654,429 shares – a Swiss investment company
    2. UBS Financial Services Inc. 11,723,456 shares – same Swiss investment company
    3. Hamlin Capital Management, LLC 3,111,743 shares – a US investment company

      Shell corporations…..Look into each of these companies.

    • Moslems ARE writing the toxic content. Pearson is based in England, and if you haven’t seen the sharia takeover there, then you might do so.

    • Calibabe712

      You obviously haven’t done your homework. This is from Wikipedia on Pearsons own page: In June 2010, Pearson Plc received notification that the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) founded by Muammer Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam Gaddafi as a sovereign fund, had acquired 24,431,000 shares within the company via Euroclear. On further investigation, Pearson said the LIA may have acquired an additional 2,141,179 shares, resulting in a total interest of 26,572,179 shares. At the time, this represented a major holding of 3.27% within the company and the investment was worth around £280 million.” While Pearson did initially freeze the holdings that freeze went by the wayside and the LIA still holds a large stake in Pearson.

    Neither Dr. Cox nor Dr. Weeda (the unnamed Ohio teacher) understands constitutional law. Neither case they cite can even remotely be read to support their assertions. Overall, this connect-the-dots piece borders on a violation of journalistic ethics and would even make Glenn Beck blush.

    Read the manifesto (link above). Not funny at all.

    So funny!
