Tunnel to Towers Foundation, a philanthropic organization, wanted to increase the opportunities for their Discovering Heroes program to be included in school districts’ regular curriculum, but they lacked the expertise in-house needed to accomplish this.

Educators are calling for materials that provide mirrors in which children can see themselves and windows through which they can understand the lives of others.

To meet this need, one ed tech provider made a commitment to review their existing materials as well as ensure that newly developed materials would be created through a culturally responsive lens. Their vision is to provide the highest quality culturally responsive K-12 educational content in the market. They knew they needed an in-depth training resource and detailed editorial guidelines.
