I attended a seminar run by the Society of Authors earlier this month. One of the sessions was about the differences between educational publishing in the UK and the USA. One of the points made was that in the UK educational publishers are focused on tests, exams, revision, and more tests, exams and revision. In the USA, by contrast, they are more concerned with, erm, education.
