Damany: “the big impact would be the impact on our students and their ability to go out and shape their futures. So that means that, we’re still part of the who is away from capturing fully in terms of what that looks like, but what we do today really is measured in growth that they’re having with us. So based on where you started with us, after a year, 2 years, 6 months, we do international benchmark testing, I think twice a year, and that allows us to, 1, just compare with the high global standards versus just the local standard, and 2, it allows us to get really strong data about the growth of the student and where we need to double down on support...”
