POWERING THE FUTURE OF LEARNING
Tackling teaching and learning challenges that disproportionately affect Black, Latino, and students of all races experiencing poverty.
OUR INCLUSIVE R&D PROGRAMS
Assessment for Good
We seek to dramatically improve conditions for the social and emotional health and positive academic outcomes of learners aged 8-13, with a special focus on Black and Latinx learners.
We aim to double the number of Black and Latinx students and students experiencing poverty in grades 3-8 who are proficient in math, by building innovative math learning systems that strengthen executive function skills.
We aim to unlock the greater reader in every child. Specifically, our program will focus on increasing reading fluency and comprehension for all students, particularly Black, Latino, and Native American students and those experiencing poverty.
