How Khan Academy, the popular free tool for students, wants to play a more official role in America’s classrooms

While the organization says it charged Chicago schools for one-off training sessions in the past, it is now formally selling its services to districts, putting it in direct competition with other education technology vendors — though there is little concrete evidence of Khan Academy’s ability to help students academically. The organization is banking that its nonprofit status and its familiarity to students and teachers, will serve as selling points. “I do think being not-for-profit increases the trust level that folks can have with us,” CEO and founder Sal Khan said. “If we really want to reach all of the students, especially the ones that might be most in need, we really have to triple down on our work with classrooms and districts.”
