About Kiddom
There’s a lack of high quality core curriculum in the K-12 marketplace and it’s exacerbating educational inequities, directly impeding our children’s ability to pursue the college or career pathways of their dreams. We believe high quality instructional materials are critical for an outstanding education. Kiddom’s technology helps teachers understand, utilize, and measure the impact of curriculum. Our platform offers school districts only the best curriculum in the marketplace, rebuilt inside simple, flexible technology to enable teachers and learners to unlock their full potential.
