The Power of Proof
In edtech, evidence-based results are the gold standard. BookNook's recent collaboration with Rocketship Schools provides just such evidence, showcasing how online tutoring can impact student reading skills. This partnership has earned BookNook a Tier 1 classification in ESSA's Tiers of Evidence, indicating its strong efficacy backed by randomized controlled trials (RCT).
Our Collective Challenges
According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), only 33% of fourth-grade students in the United States are proficient in reading. This figure drops to 17% for low-income students. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing inequalities and widened the achievement gap.
Nearly a third of US K–12 educators are considering leaving their jobs, with 55% considering leaving the profession earlier than planned.
A survey by the National Education Association found that 30% of surveyed educators said they plan to leave the profession within the next three years, while another 33% said they were considering it.
At least 300,000 public schoolteachers and other staff left the field between February 2020 and May 2022, The Wall Street Journal reports.
