The new joint venture will bring the GED to a new and exciting level of excellence on behalf of learners seeking additional academic credentials and career opportunities.
Battle helped negotiate a comprehensive partnership between the National Geographic’s School Publishing Division and Cengage Learning. The complex deal included the sale of select educational assets as well as a global license for use of the Society’s brand in classrooms around the world. Battle also helped conceive and negotiate a successful prior partnership between Cengage Learning (formerly Heinle/Thomson) and NGS to launch English language teaching institutions around the world.
Battle is working closely with the American Council on Education to develop adult education strategies for learners currently struggling to become college and career-ready. ACE is collaborating with the Federal government, philanthropic institutions, and the private sector and convening a wide array of talented and committed stakeholders to create a healthy ecosystem for adult education.
