Schools and Districts Are Working to Keep Equity Front and Center

In partnership with organizations like Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE), we engage with expert researchers to learn more about what schools, districts, states, and the nation is doing to support students most vulnerable to educational system failings. 

Choosing the Right Instructional Materials Can Transform Learning for Students

Pivot Learning and EdReports have partnered to offer instructional materials adoption support in California, through our CalCurriculum website and partnership with districts. CalCurriculum’s goal is to help districts adopt and implement quality instructional materials.

CalCurriculum provides:

  • Independent reviews of instructional materials
  • Actionable resources for adoption of instructional materials
  • Guidance on selection of instructional materials, tailored to the California context

The report not only sounds the alarm about the equity crisis facing California public schools; it offers solutions for school districts and state policymakers.
