I’m attaching the results of the School Book Spending Survey which has recently been completed. It covers the period from 1989-2007 making it a very valuable series of data. Happily, the survey shows rises in book spending for both primary and secondary schools. You can download a copy of the survey from our Research page (PDF format, 100KB).
Our special thanks to Bronwen Nicholson of Pearson Education and Mark Sayes from ESA Publications for the time they have spent on this project on behalf of BPANZ and also to CLL for funding assistance.
