How the Education system will be in future
Deals to ed tech startups are rebounding after a dip in 2016 ended a three-year growth streak. Among the most high-profile recent rounds, in April, DC-based broad online learning platform EverFi raised a $190M Series D round from investors including Jeff Bezos and Eric Schmidt. It is among the largest ed tech rounds of the last two years.
