Why We Invested

Even in the most effecient schools in Latin America instructional time in the classroom is a full 20 percentage points below best practice levels, meaning that students are losing an entire school day every week from their "learning time." The vast majority of the lost time came from classroom management and administrative requirements — taking attendance, grading homework, distributing papers. Agenda Edu's platform enables improved efficiency, management, and communication in schools enabling teachers, schools leaders and school directors to focus on what matters most -- students' learning.

What We've Learned

Agenda Edu is not just solving a key issue for schools, but solving a gap for parents. In line with our hypothesis that middleware creates a platform to provide addition digital services to schools and parents, Agenda Edu recently rolled out an integration with EduGo! to help parents easily manage school pick up and drop off.

I believe in technology as a fundamental tool for achieving scale and efficiency in the processes that support education. At Agenda Edu we work daily to deliver a platform that improves the relationship between educators, family members, and students, enabling a greater engagement of these actors in their educational journeys.
