KATIE AND HUNTER ON THE TODAY SHOW!
Making The Grade
The Straight-A Conspiracy (La Conspiración de las Calificaciones Perfectas) educational approach was developed over twelve years, as Katie and Hunter worked with students of all ages, disciplines, and socioeconomic backgrounds. They quickly realized the challenge was always the same: students didn’t understand how learning actually works.
With The Straight-A Conspiracy now reaching a global audience, Hunter and Katie continue to write articles and produce episodes of the Mixed Mental Arts podcast (over 250,000 downloads per month to advance their mission of teaching everyone how to unlock their potential and become the kind of learner that will thrive in the 21st Century.)

Literacy is transformative: it increases earning potential, decreases inequality, improves health outcomes and breaks the cycle of poverty (UNESCO). Yet there are 740 million illiterate people in this world and 250 million children of primary school age who lack basic reading and writing skills (UNESCO). Books are necessary for the development of these skills, and still 40% of schools in Africa have few or no textbooks at all (SACMEQ II).
