Our theory of action at EdReports is that by providing more information about aligned curriculum and supporting smart demand, we will be able to improve the supply of high quality, aligned materials that are available in classrooms nationwide. To that end, we're thrilled that our next round of 58 K-8 math grade-level reviews has started and our results will be posted on a rolling basis.

August marks EdReports.org’s one year anniversary since we first brought educators together from across the country to review instructional materials for alignment. Our goal remains to ensure that educators have high quality, aligned materials that will support students in being able to meet rigorous standards. We are so proud of the work that our first cohort of 46 educators have done to elevate the conversation around high quality instructional materials. Since we launched our first set of 87 K-8 math reports in March, we have worked continuously to refine our resources and prepare a new cohort of 47 educators to conduct reviews so that we provide the best, most beneficial information to educators and those making district purchasing decisions.
