Pearson Write to Learn

Does anyone have experience with Pearson's Write to Learn? I tried a few years ago to get a previous principal to consider it. The "no" reason was that some teachers would only use the auto-graded summaries and wouldn't teach writing. I held my tongue. Are they teaching it now...?

After a few years with new standards, I find that students wait for others to think, have less basic comprehension, parrot random text quotes that don't answer the question, and write as little as possible.

If you use/used it, what benefits and drawbacks did you see?

I'm not familiar with it, but I am very firmly anti-Pearson anything!

I gotta go with icrazyteach. Anything Pearson is off my list if I have a choice. I don't like their politics or business style.
