DURHAM, N.C. — June 28, 2016 — EdReports.org, the nonprofit whose educator teams review instructional materials to determine alignment to Common Core standards, announced the results of its first round of reviews of high school mathematics textbooks. Five reports examining both three-course traditional (Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II) and integrated (I, II, III) sequences were published today, along with the review tool and evidence guides educators used in the process.

Matt Barnum featured EdReports.org and our new high school math reviews on the74million.org. In the article titled "Several HS Math Textbooks Not Aligned With Common Core, Ratings Group Finds," Executive Director Eric Hirsch was quoted about why our review process and tool prioritize the key concepts of focus, coherence, rigor and the math practices: “Our educators who designed the [evaluation] tool said, ‘If it’s not covering the right math, talking about how usable it is is not constructive.’”

With a new year approaching comes a great opportunity to reflect. As I think about the past year, I am grateful for our partners, our Board, our staff and our network of educators that has helped EdReports advance its mission to increase the capacity of teachers, administrators and leaders to seek, identify and demand the highest-quality instructional materials.
