"Teen Biz has been a powerful addition to our curriculum. It is the only intervention we have found that allows our teachers to continue to focus on the district's core curriculum while at the same time increasing students' literacy levels,” says Saliyah Cruz, Principal West Philadelphia High School. “Teen Biz allows all students, regardless of deficiencies or reading gaps, to access the same content. This allows the ability to gain the content knowledge necessary to engage in meaningful class discussion and skill application."
