Michael Feldstein writes, " Derek Newton expanded on this thread at Forbes with yesterday's It's Been A 'Brutal' Year for Public Education Companies." He suggests "your favorite EdTech vendor is much more likely to acquire (or be acquired) in the next few years than they had been." And notes "Byju's, an India online education startup, is in discussions to acquire a US target and likely to bid for either Chegg Inc. or 2U Inc., according to people familiar with the matter." None of this means anything, except that the people who work in these places will get hurt. It's all just the churn.
