The stress of teaching has never been greater, with the impact of distance learning and the educational deficit created during the COVID-19 pandemic leaving their marks on both the students and the people we entrust with their young minds ...  

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly 70 percent of educators complained that they didn’t have regular access to high-quality instructional materials, and many spent as much as 12 hours each week searching for materials or creating their own, time that could have been spent teaching. That’s a lost opportunity when reports have shown that improving the quality of curriculum is 40 times more cost-effective than class-size reduction at increasing student achievement.
