The Work and Why it Matters:

Educational inequity doesn’t have to be a fact. We know every student is capable of earning success in school and in life, but often do not receive the individualized support they deserve. Implementing academic interventions that address the inequities faced by historically marginalized students continues to be one of our nation’s most urgent challenges. While educators, and students alike, have experienced many unprecedented challenges recently, educators continue to report that their top concern is students falling behind in math. This concern is heightened for educators in high-poverty districts who predominantly teach Black or Latinx students.

At Saga Education, we leverage the best of technology and human instruction to maximize learning, to improve student confidence, and to help students feel connected to a caring adult in school. Now more than ever, we need talented, caring, and capable people, committed to supporting our students in their academic and social development.
