About TalkingPoints

TalkingPoints ( is an award-winning education technology non-profit organization with the mission to unlock the potential of low-income, underserved families to support their children’s learning by partnering with their children’s schools.

We have won awards from NYU, MIT,, Ashoka, Forbes and are backed by, AT&T, Carnegie Corporation, Schmidt Futures, Stanford University and NewSchools Venture Fund, to name a few. Most recently we were named an evidence-based learning platform to support by MIT's J-Pal, and our research partners include University of Chicago and MIT. Learn more
