CommonLit is a nonprofit education technology organization dedicated to ensuring that all students, especially those in Title I schools, graduate with the reading, writing, communication, and problem-solving skills they need to be successful in college and beyond. They have been especially busy since the lockdown and are now helping create solutions to address the learning loss that occurred as a result. And here to share that story with us is Michelle Brown, the founder and CEO of CommonLit.
