We have an amazing line-up of panelists and guests coming to Age of Learning headquarters for this edtech meetup. Learn more below. Hope you can make it.
I am pleased to announce Age of Learning’s latest education access initiative here on my blog.
More than one million children from birth to age 8 currently live in public housing in the U.S. These children typically have less access to quality education and learning resources, resulting in an achievement gap that begins when they enter kindergarten unprepared to learn and widens as they progress to 3rd grade. Research shows that more than 80 percent of children from low-income families are not proficient readers by the end of 3rd grade. To help address this gap, Age of Learning recently joined the Leadership Cohort of the Book-Rich Environments Initiative.
You can read more about this initiative here on the Age of Learning blog.
