We care about opportunity for all students. We care about supporting educators. So we care about results.
ANet schools with the right conditions in place see 6 months of additional learning over 2 years.
As a nonprofit dedicated to educational equity, we don’t feel it’s enough to provide state-of-the-art tools and knowledge, then simply trust that doing so makes a difference. We want to know our work is having a positive impact. And so do the schools that partner with us.
Harvard’s Center for Education Policy Research conducted a randomized control study funded by a prestigious i3 (Investing in Innovation) grant from the DOE. They found that when schools have the right basic conditions in place and partner with ANet, they achieve six months of additional learning over a two-year period.
School practice matters.
The i3 study confirmed that setting the conditions for student success begins with the practice of teachers and school leaders. That’s why ANet provides long-term partnership—resources, professional development, and coaching—to help educators be the teachers and leaders they aspire to be.
Year after year, in school after school, ANet’s support helps schools get results for students.
- In Colorado, ANet partner schools outpaced statewide gains in ELA and Math for the third year in a row.
- In Eastern Massachusetts, ANet schools in economically-disadvantaged communities significantly outpaced their peer schools (+5 in ELA and +8 in Math).
- In Illinois, for the second year in a row, ANet’s average growth was almost 4x that of non-ANet schools on the city’s annual school report card.
- In Michigan and Ohio, ANet partners outpaced their peer schools in economically-disadvantaged communities by more than two times in ELA and Math.
- In New York, ANet schools made proficiency gains that were 3x more in ELA and 2x more in math than non-ANet schools in the state.
- Even in schools with high ELL or special education populations, ANet schools made significantly greater gains.
