This year’s conference theme, "Strength in Numbers," is a celebration of a decade of data-informed progress from across our network and an opportunity to discuss our future direction. Join us for our 10th-anniversary celebration. We will look back at the evidence-informed progress we’ve made as a sector but also look forward to the pressing issues of the day. This year the event will take place at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA from May 20–22, 2019.

Capstone Roundtable — Filling the Data Void on the K–12 Curriculum Market Limited seats remain
Limited Capacity filling up

Can we improve K-12 instruction by identifying high-quality, standards-aligned curricular materials and increasing market demand for such materials. EdReports is attempting to do just that. Yet data on LEA curriculum procurement are not readily available for analysis, limiting our ability to understand the state of the curriculum market and whether, how, and why it is changing. In this roundtable, SDP Fellow Mark LaVenia will share EdReports efforts to generate demand for high-quality materials associated with classroom improvement by building an instructional materials database that will allow for a better understanding of curriculum quality.
