Teachers make a difference. In fact, a good teacher has two to three times the impact of any other school factor on student achievement.* That’s why we at the Consortium on Reaching Excellence in Education (CORE) collaborate with educators to provide in-person and remote professional learning and ongoing support to implement high-quality math and English language arts curricular materials, rigorous instruction and effective assessment practices grounded in the science of reading. We are committed to educational equity by building teachers’ instructional skills so that all students, especially those who have been marginalized and traditionally underserved, can thrive academically.
Since 1995, CORE has worked with more than 100,000 educators to build their competence and confidence to implement their chosen ELA and math curricula and provide instruction grounded in research and evidence-based practices. CORE’s professional learning support meets the ESSA Moderate Evidence requirement with positive outcomes documented by third party evaluations. Our nationally recognized textbooks, Teaching Reading Sourcebook and Assessing Reading: Multiple Measures, along with the highly effective Spend Some Time with 1 to 9 supplemental math program, serve as trusted resources for thousands of educators as they strive to improve academic outcomes for every learner.
