My only question is, without the WR, will Scholastic still be able to disseminate coal industry propaganda to influence young minds, as it did back in May?

Weekly Reader goes belly-up after being bought by Scholastic, Inc.
7 million in 2002. At that time, many of its writers were former teachers. Much of this drop can be attributed to decreased school budgets and to the swing away from printed matter to online reading in schools. By folding WR into Scholastic, the company hopes to increase its profitability by firing 55 of 60 Weekly Reader employees.
