ORADELL, NJ--(Marketwire - Nov 7, 2012) - Huntington Learning Center recently joined the Education Industry Association (EIA) and the Education Industry Foundation (EIF) in support of their campaign to combine research, advocacy and communications to create an open market for charter school operators, providers of extended learning time, publishers, suppliers of alternative and special education services and school turnaround companies. The EIA/EIF Private Ventures for the Public Good Campaign intends to create conditions to allow education companies such as Huntington to help schools improve student achievement.
Some of the key goals of the Private Ventures for the Public Good Campaign are to produce credible research on the effectiveness of private sector-produced education products, services and solutions, and give education companies and entrepreneurs a voice and status equal to that offered by other key stakeholders in pre-kindergarten to 12th grade education policy discussions and debates.
"Over the past 35 years, Huntington Learning Center has helped hundreds of thousands of students across the nation and worked with hundreds of struggling school districts," said Dr. Raymond Huntington, founder and chairman of Huntington. "We are proud of the role we continue to play in reforming schools and improving the education of so many students, but we are eager to join this important campaign to raise awareness of the positive benefits of what we do among education policymakers and the public."
EIA is the leading professional association for private sector providers of education services, suppliers of educational content and management support to the industry. They estimate that education is a $1 trillion industry second in size to the health care industry -- and that education companies alone constitute $80 billion in annual revenues.
