Update #8

U.S. DoE and our 1st Press Release

Comment

We are excited to have finalized our partnership with the U.S. Department of Education. They will feature us in their newsletter Teaching Matters and we hope to co-facilitate town-hall meetings with families throughout the year. Also, yesterday, we put out our first press release and are thrilled by the interest the national media has expressed.

We are less than ten days away from the deadline, so during your next mental break from work, sign in to Kickstarter and make a $100 tax deductible pledge. Then tell your network that you made a pledge and that they should give $100 as well. Remember, these pledges are 100% tax deductible, and we only receive funds if we reach our goal.

Our research will be a helpful resource for educators and families across the country. Join our team, and help us make this final push.

Thank you!

Brooke, Michelle and Todd
