Curriki is a local non-profit that is focused on breaking down the barriers of the Education Divide — the division of inequality that prevents children worldwide from access to quality education.As a San Francisco resident, I was thrilled to see the recent Reset San Francisco blog featuring Curriki, a social network for educators for crowdsourcing curricula. We’re a local non-profit that is focused on breaking down the barriers of the Education Divide — the division of inequality that prevents children worldwide from access to quality education.

If you’re an educator, parent or even a student, I encourage you to check out Curriki where you’ll find more than 45,000 K-12 resources that are free for you to use, tweak and share. You can find everything from lesson plans and worksheets to videos and learning games. Have you heard of the Khan Academy or checked out free eTextbooks or Brainpop videos? You’ll find all of these on our site.

Here are a few comments from our members:

“Being able to browse through Curriki has allowed me to bring effective lessons and teaching ideas into the classroom when my brain is too exhausted to develop them on my own.” [Teacher]

“I just got my report card yesterday with straight A's and a 4.1 GPA! I have been using Curriki for my geometry, and it has been helping me understand things so much better.” [Student]

“My wife and I stumbled upon Curriki while searching for innovative resources for the classroom. My wife thought it was a great community; I was skeptical… I now use Curriki resources in nearly all of my lessons.” [Teacher]
