America’s schools have shown significant improvement in achievement over the past decade. But unfortunately, a considerable achievement  gap still exists for students who are Hispanic/Latino or African American, and for English Learners and students with disabilities. Research demonstrates that schools can close these achievement gaps, using research-proven strategies and materials to create high quality educational experiences to all students. The NETWORK provides a link between schools with identified needs and the companies whose quality products will meet those needs. Schools specialize in educating students; businesses specialize in creating quality products. The key to success for both is linking the quality product to the identified need. This creates a win-win situation for everyone.
