Get a brief overview of work-for-hire and the educational market. Included in that link are some resources I highly recommend.

Description: Some say work-for-hire (WFH) is the publishing world’s best kept secret. If you enjoy researching and writing about new topics, both fiction and nonfiction, consider WFH, especially for the educational market. Participants will learn how to capture the attention of editors at educational publishers with appropriate resumes and samples. They’ll also find out about the ever-evolving variety of WFH projects, ranging from creative nonfiction to interactive media content. Discover how your unique talents can match the needs of educational publishers and identify the skills you’ll need to develop. If you love writing for children (K-12) and have a flair for simple storytelling, then the world of WFH publishing is for you!
