About our educational review process

At Prodigy Education we take our educational content seriously. Any time you see the “Reviewed by” label on a blog post, it means that we have asked one of our internal experts – all accredited educators, whose credentials we publish – to review the content. And then we respond to their feedback to make sure what we share is accurate, supported and up to the standards of what’s currently being discussed in the education industry.
