We’re honored to announce that we have been selected as a grantee for the Accelerate Call to Effective Action - a national effort to develop and scale sustainable, cost-effective models for high-impact tutoring that boost academic achievement for all students.
In partnership with research teams at the National Student Support Accelerator at Brown University and LXD Research, we will be conducting randomized controlled trials on our program efficacy in several states. We will also join the Accelerate community to share best practices and resources and help inform Accelerate’s national research and policy agenda.
As Accelerate CEO Kevin Huffman has said: “We know that good tutoring programs work — partly because well-off families have used them to boost student success for generations. And we know that those same programs can be a powerful tool to close racial and economic opportunity gaps when we give less privileged students the same access. What we haven’t figured out yet is how to make high-impact tutoring available for everyone. With districts deciding how to spend one-time federal funds to combat the effects of the pandemic, solving that challenge has never been more urgent."
