CK-12 Foundation and Leadership Public Schools (LPS) have partnered to introduce College Access Readers. CK-12 provides the content and platform for low-cost, mass-customization in textbooks. LPS brings to the table instructional expertise and a real-world incubator for urban education. Together CK-12 and LPS are creating a line of curriculum resources tailored to the most challenging demographic in California and the nation. We call these resources “College Access Readers.” Available as a PDF here.
