"With the implementation of the Common Core standardized curriculum, the focus on content is becoming less about differentiation and more about delivery through emerging technology platforms," stated Mary Jo Zandy, Managing Director at Berkery Noyes. "Interactive assessment tools that measure student progress, particularly in the quantitative disciplines, will thus become even more important in K-12 education as schools aim to meet specific testing benchmarks."Regarding other market segments in the industry, M&A activity pertaining to educational institutions increased 33 percent in the last three months, including a 25 percent improvement within the Professional Training Institutions segment.
