  • Icon pedagogy


    Lessons are created by trained teachers, with over ten years of experience working with students aged 10 to 16. Our team works hard to ensure our skills-based lessons are engaging, inclusive and accessible.

  • Icon integrity


    Expert journalists at The Economist guide our content selection so we publish the most important information, a fair representation of an issue and a variety of perspectives.

  • icon objectivity


    We cut through the media’s biases. Unlike The Economist, we don’t take a stance on issues so that students can form their own opinions. To do this, we involve external consultants, journalists and topic experts.
