PreK-12 Learning

The role of the publisher in PreK-12 learning is dynamic, innovative and integral to the education of America’s next generation of citizens.

The image of hard-cover textbooks is outdated. Contemporary PreK-12 publishers work in all formats, on all platforms and in every aspect of the PreK-through-graduation learning experience. They are content creators, education technologists and marketers.

To meet the challenges and opportunities facing this diverse publishing sector, the School Division of the Association of American Publishers and the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP) merged in July 2013. The PreK-12 Learning Group, a new AAP Division, offers its membership a rich portfolio of comprehensive state, federal and global advocacy on behalf of critical industry issues; professional development; awards programs; branding and awareness initiatives; research intelligence; partnerships; and numerous cutting-edge resources to support publishers across all levels and specialties.

The Learning Group continues to engage with myriad stakeholders and other partners in education. It works extensively with local, state and federal policy leaders on such issues as funding, curriculum, testing and literacy. The Division is committed to encouraging the development of professional, quality content for teaching and learning while fostering a fair, competitive and robust market.
