    The Knowledge Matters Campaign is excited to announce upcoming visits to three Delaware school districts that have implemented high-quality math curricula. Comprising the campaign’s first mathematics-focused tour, the visits will showcase schools improving student engagement and achievement in math through their implementation of high-quality instructional materials. The districts selected for the tour are pioneers in the adoption of high-quality math curricula and serve as models for the state’s strategic shift to high-quality instructional materials.
