Scholastic has acquired Learners Publishing, a Singapore-based publisher of supplemental learning materials for English-language learners. Terms of the transaction, negotiated by Scholastic’s Singapore subsidiary Scholastic Education International (Singapore) Private Ltd., were not disclosed.
Since its launch in 2000 by Mew Yew Hwa, Learners Publishing has produced a list of more than 400 titles, many of which have been adopted by schools in Singapore and regional Asian markets. “Through this acquisition, Scholastic’s offering of products in the English Language Learning segment is significantly enhanced. Learners’ talented team and its list of outstanding titles will assist Scholastic in accelerating educational publishing growth in International markets,” said Shane Armstrong, president, Scholastic International, Growth Markets.
