Supporting and empowering educators

The IPA-EPF acknowledges the fundamental importance of teachers in the educational ecosystem. Educational Publishers are often ex-teachers and, as a rule, they focus on producing and refining materials and resources that will allow teachers to perform at their best in classrooms—delivering the curriculum and providing the best possible education to the widest possible number of students.
