Push for High-Quality Instructional Materials in Your State!
During this time of extended education disruption, teachers, students, and families need access to high-quality instructional materials that are aligned to state academic standards and that include meaningful training and actionable methods for measuring student growth.
Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly 70% of teachers struggled to find high-quality, vetted materials for instruction. Studies show that such materials have a direct and significant impact on student learning. High-quality instructional materials also allow teachers to spend more time daily on high-impact activities like engaging with families rather than low-impact activities like creating materials from scratch.
As we set our sights on helping our students and schools recover, urge education officials in your state to build out the best resources possible for our educators, students, and families.
