Microsoft launches Bing REDU to help improve America’s education system
There is a national crisis taking place in education. There are lots of voices participating – from government officials to teachers and parents and students themselves – but no single place to unify, empower and inspire everyone to help. Today Microsoft is launching REDU, a “home room” on the web for people who want to join in the conversation and take action to improve America’s education system.

At Microsoft, we are committed to help tackle some of society’s biggest challenges. In the past decade, I’ve worked alongside many dedicated colleagues who are passionate about making a difference in public education, as Microsoft employees, community advocates and parents. We all want to help improve educational outcomes for children and provide teachers with the tools and support they need. We are always looking for new and creative ways to support teachers, students and parents in these efforts.
Microsoft has a long history of involvement in education, with national and community-based programs designed to empower teachers and inspire students, such as Partners in Learning, EduConnect and Imagine Cup, as well as our ongoing support for the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and math).
Today, Microsoft is pleased to launch Bing REDU, a forum for public discussion and engagement that’s focused on helping to improve the U.S. education system.
