Research demonstrates that instructional materials can have as large an impact on student outcomes as teaching quality.

EdReports.org is at the forefront of the curriculum reform movement. With the firm belief that what is taught matters and that all students deserve high quality materials, EdReports.org publishes free, online, evidence-rich reviews of instructional materials.
