News Corp. Makes Another Move Into Education Market

Will co-sponsor GOP candidates' forum on issue

Last week, Rupert Murdoch gave an uncharacteristic presentation at the eG8 Forum in Paris: he talked about kids and schools. The media mogul seems to be branching out with a new endeavor that may also deliver some business benefits—education reform. On Tuesday, News Corp. announced that it will be partnering with the College Board, an association of educational organizations best known as the nonprofit behind the SATs, to push the issue of education in the upcoming presidential campaign.
