Benchmark Education Company
Educational Leader TM is a product of Benchmark Education Company (BEC). Since 1998, BEC has published research-based literacy materials for supplementary and intervention use. Our materials are now used in over 15,000 schools and districts across the United States and abroad. BEC has extensive experience in addressing the needs of at-risk populations, both through published materials and professional development.
BEC resources are designed to supplement core reading programs. BEC programs offer teachers extensive support in each of the Five Essential Skill Areas of Reading First and are designed to promote the goals of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). BEC programs and professional development provide research-based solutions for a broad array of state and federally funded initiatives, including Title I, Reading First, and 21st Century Community Learning Center grants.
