The AT&T Aspire Accelerator Program

Hitting the accelerator on learning

The AT&T Aspire Accelerator connects ed-tech entrepreneurs to the resources they need to drive exponential change in how kids learn.

Roughly 63% of U.S. students graduate high school each year unable to read proficiently1, jeopardizing their ability to earn a college degree or secure a high-wage job.

Washington, DC-based nonprofit, CommonLit, is one of the six organizations that make up the 2016 Accelerator class. By delivering free digital instructional materials they help teachers spark an interest in reading that can grow into a lifetime of learning.
