Scholastic to Shut Down Weekly Reader Magazine, N.Y. Post Says

Scholastic Corp. will cease publication of the Weekly Reader, a magazine circulated in classrooms since 1902, after buying it earlier this year, the New York Post reported.

Scholastic, publisher of the Hunger Games books, plans to fold the magazine into Scholastic News and fire 55 of 60 Weekly Reader employees in White Plains, New York, the newspaper said. The Post didn’t say where it got the information on job cuts.
