So, where might schools look for funding for the Discovery Series? There may be several known sources, and there may be some yet to be discovered.
With the average cost of educating a student in a public school in America more than $12,500, it would seem quite feasible to find $15 to provide each student with the Discovery Series. This is especially true when one considers the benefits of the Discovery Series. Each state has guidelines for what every student should know and be able to do in Math, English Language Arts & Literacy, History/Social Studies, and Science from Kindergarten through 12th grade. These standards are research and evidence-based and aligned with college and work expectations. The Discovery Workbook meets many of these including: Speaking & Listening, Writing, and Language/Literature.
Other social-emotional standards impacted include: Recognizing and managing emotions, demonstrating care and concern for others, establishing positive relationships, making responsible decisions, handling challenging situations constructively, promoting mental wellness, prevention of mental health issues, school connectedness, reduction in student absenteeism, and improved academic outcomes.
