Pearson Honored as 2008 Education Partner of the Year

The Boston Business Journal (BBJ) has honored Pearson, the global leader in educational publishing and technology, as Education Partner of the Year for its partnership with Jumpstart, a Boston nonprofit specializing in early education. The award recognizes companies who demonstrate innovation and development of best practices in specific partnerships with nonprofits. The Award was presented at the Boston Business Journal's 2008 Corporate Philanthropy & Citizenship Summit, which features an awards celebration honoring top corporate philanthropists and provides professional knowledge on how to begin or sustain a charitable mission. Pearson was selected by an independent panel of judges from among hundreds of nominations in recognition of its sustained commitment to a Boston organization to support civic initiatives and social change. Barke was also nominated for the BBJ's 2008 Social Leadership Award, given to a CEO from the Greater Boston Area. Barke was instrumental in developing the award-winning Pearson Jumpstart Partnership, a multi-million dollar collaboration initiated in 2001 with the creation of the Pearson Teacher Fellowship, a program that encourages high-achieving college students to pursue teaching careers in disadvantaged communities.
