Political Activity

We are among the thousands of organizations - labor unions, corporations, colleges, churches and charities - that engage in political activities.

In 2015, Pearson spent less than $2.5 million on lobbying and political activities in the United States, our largest market.

We use our lobbyists to share research and information with policy makers and advocate for equity in education. We do not set policy; rather, our role is to help our customers implement the decisions that come from policy leaders.

Pearson does not make direct contributions or donations to political parties or candidates anywhere around the world, nor do we support employees to form Political Action Committees.
