Educators: Help us investigate the reading and math curriculums NYC plans to mandate

New York City may soon require hundreds of public schools to change how they teach reading and math, marking a significant shift from the freedom schools have long enjoyed in choosing their own materials.

The city has not yet publicly announced any changes. But sources familiar with the education department’s plans said the city is planning to roll out three reading curriculums in nearly half of the city districts next school year with the rest to follow the year after that. The reading curriculums include: Wit & Wisdom, from a company called Great Minds; Into Reading from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; and Expeditionary Learning, from EL Education.
