Our Vision

All students and teachers will have access to the highest quality instructional materials that will help improve student learning outcomes.

The Need

Rigorous college- and career-ready standards can improve and deepen student learning. To reach these standards, what is taught matters. Teachers deserve access to high-quality, aligned instructional materials to support their classrooms.

Instructional materials that claim to be standards-aligned have saturated the market. Yet we know many of those claims have not been verified by a reliable source.

Our independent reviews empower school districts with comprehensive information and help to identify quality materials so that all students have access to the resources to ensure they thrive.

Led by Educators

Our work is led by outstanding classroom educators, principals, district leaders and state administrators. Educators sit on our Board of Directors, develop our review rubrics and design and implement our review process.

The EdReports content review team consists of expert educators who deeply understand the Common Core State Standards and the importance of high-quality instructional materials.

The selection process includes an application, interviews, and a work sample to ensure reviewers' mastery of the standards.
