Eighteen percent of teachers strongly agree that their materials are aligned to standards. 

My initial reaction to that statement is that needs to be addressed. When it comes to materials and the kinds of things that we do at EdReports, publishers are listening to what teachers are saying about what’s quality and what’s not. 

For so long, teacher voice had been absent in that conversation but there are thousands of us out here working. Let’s work together. There’s a huge system out here that we’ve got to change. 

My name is Arthur. I’ve been an educator for 12 years and I believe that materials matter.
