Hi -

Before I approve your proposal, I need to know if ED-ucation Publishing is a for profit company.


Lucy Gray

Hi Lucy,

We had a feeling this might come up as we had seen other posts similar to this. In hindsight, it may have been easier to sign up as individuals. ED-ucation Publishing is simply a collaborative name and space for Tosca and I to share resources with teachers around the globe. It gives us more credibility when creating free resources as educators, such as TED-ucation books, but we are not incorporated and are not for profit. 

I hope this answers your questions. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us. 


Okay, both sessions accepted.
