EDC has been awarded a contract from the government of Burkina Faso to support early childhood development and build the capacity of the government to offer high-quality early learning as part of the Project to Improve Access to Quality Education (PAAQE).
EDC’s Deborah Schifter was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame for Mathematics Educators by the Association of Teachers of Mathematics in Massachusetts (ATMIM), an affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).
EDC founder and MIT physics professor Jerrold Zacharias and his colleagues formed the Physical Science Study Committee in 1956 to improve physics learning in high school. As author Robin Kazmier writes, they started a revolution that changed the way science is taught in classrooms today.
In an opinion piece, EDC’s Carol Oliver writes that the stigma surrounding substance use disorders may delay or prevent seeking help. Oliver says that a change in attitude is needed regarding how addiction and mental health issues are discussed.
