Better decisions,
Better outcomes

Education is the only proven, scalable pathway out of poverty. The Center for Education Market Dynamics helps district leaders make decisions about products and services that make that pathway more accessible to underserved students.

Our Platform provides you with accurate relevant information about who’s using which solutions, at what price, using which funds — and what's working.


Make impact investing more impactful

Learn where your investment can make the biggest difference by understanding what educators need — and who’s up to meeting the challenge.


Take a smarter approach to scale

Stop basing your strategy and product development on assumptions. Grow your impact by getting to know the customers who need your products the most, including the world they live in.

What people are saying

The Center is a resource that can help us idenfy what districts similar to mine are using as one of many data points that need to be considered when making decisions about curriculum.

Francisco Villegas

VP of School Transformation, LAUSD

It’s excing to see a resource like this in development. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product and being able to use it.

Jennifer Rees

CAO, East EPO Rochester City School District, NY

We have steady demand for what we offer, but without knowledge of who’s using what curriculum, we’re only scratching the surface. With better insights, we can scale by targeting the districts who need us most.

Who we serve

Leveraging markets to spread solutions is one of the best means we have of improving student outcomes.

The Center for Education Market Dynamics provides district leaders with contextualized data that helps them make decisions that generate equitable outcomes.

When districts gain access to contextualized information, providers get clear on the best products to offer, and investors aim capital at the areas of greatest need, students win.

The Center is an initiative of EdSolutions, an education-focused consulting firm focused on generating social impact through market-informed strategy and innovation.

Pivotal Decisions
How the education market can help educators, philanthropists, and innovators make choices that improve outcomes and promote equity.

In our latest whitepaper, we explore:

  • The role that the education market can play in delivering equitable outcomes
  • The education market’s complex structure — and why it often fails the students who need it most
  • How sharing timely, relevant information can benefit educators, innovators, and philanthropies — and help underserved students succeed

The market for instructional materials is complex. Too often, the right resources don't reach the right students at the right time.
