re: McGraw Hill NSM

Interesting to see the pics from the NSM and the money the company spent -- I'm just curious, do you all think McGraw Hill is the whitest sales force you have every seen? My goodness every group pic looked like pics of them from the old South.

Mgmt Issues

McGraw/ Cengage Merger

I’m concerned McGraw is going to be consumed by Cengage. We have been stealing business from Cengage for years and Cengage always seems to be restructuring and trying new thing unsuccessfully. Maybe time to go back to Pearson?
