We hear time and time again that our educator reviewers are driven by the knowledge that their reviews directly support districts, teachers, and publishers seeking aligned, quality instructional materials. As teachers, coaches, and district- and state-leads, they know the value of being able to access information to make the right content decisions for their students. Hear directly from some of them about how they hope their work can inform and improve the field.
