Why We Care

At EdReports, we know materials matter for kids. Our mission is to increase the capacity of teachers, administrators, and leaders to seek, identify, and demand high-quality instructional materials to ensure students at all levels receive an excellent education.


Student Learning

Rigorous college and career-ready standards can improve and deepen student learning. What is taught matters.


High Expectations for All

Not all students have the same access to high-quality instructional materials and this perpetuates the opportunity gap.



When teachers are provided with high-quality materials and aligned professional learning, this increases the opportunity for all students to learn and grow.
