New Delhi, Jan 6 (SocialNews.XYZ) Edtech company LEAD on Friday announced it has entered into an agreement with leading learning company Pearson to acquire its local K-12 learning business in India for an undisclosed sum.

LEAD said it will expand its reach to over 9,000 schools and enhance its product portfolio to cater to more than 5 lakh private schools in India.


In its K-12 learning portfolio, Pearson India caters to private, English medium CBSE and ICSE schools, offering blended learning solutions (books+digital).

"School edtech is poised for sustained growth post-Covid and with the acquisition of the local K-12 learning business of Pearson India, we will be able to reach more schools and students in the service of our mission to provide excellent education to every child," said Sumeet Mehta, Co-Founder and CEO, LEAD.
