As of January 2014, Bridge is operating 259 academies in Kenya with more than 80,000 pupils and has aggressive global expansion planned for 2014 and beyond. Bridge utilizes a research-proven, scripted-learning education methodology coupled with big data (all teachers have tablets for instruction, assessment, and data-gathering) to profitably deliver high quality education at less than $6 per child per month.We have a small Boston office with expert curriculum directors in math, science, English, Swahili, history, and pre-K. They need help. Curriculum Writing Fellows use model lesson scripts (developed by experts) to draft new lessons for Kenyan teachers. They also assist curriculum directors in research, and developing assessment questions. (Deadline: Wednesday, April 30)
