EdReports.org has generated a ton of attention since it emerged in the K-12 market a few years ago as a service devoted to reviewing the quality of instructional materials.
On Wednesday, July 24 at 2 p.m. EST, EdWeek Market Brief will host a webinar that takes its audience inside EdReports’ process, how the organization works with curriculum providers and districts, and how K-12 systems use its reviews in screening and selecting classroom resources.
I’ll be moderating the webinar, and I’ll joined by Eric Hirsch, the executive director of EdReports.org, and by Baltimore Public Schools CEO Sonja Santelises, who will talk about how her district and its staff uses the EdReports process. They give your their thoughts, and take your questions.
Curriculum-buying is a high-stakes game for school districts, and for companies developing academic resources. School systems count on academic materials as guides that will lead teachers and students through complex content, align with standards and tests, and engage students. Publishers, in turn, invest heavily in materials and they need to be able to convince districts that their content is top-notch. While EdReports has its critics, it has also won a following among K-12 officials making purchasing decisions.
