Weekly Reader is Folding

Weekly Reader magazine is shutting down. The New York Post reports that the magazine is being folded into Scholastic News. As part of the change, Scholastic is cutting 55 of the Weekly Reader’s 60 staffers.

“We are confident that the combined Scholastic News/Weekly Reader team will now offer an even better news and information experience in print and digital formats for teachers and students,” a Scholastic spokesperson told the Post.

RDA sold Weekly Reader to Scholastic in February.
