Knowledge & Learning Solutions Overview
Educational attainment is strongly associated with socioeconomic advancement, higher lifetime earnings, improved health and longevity, and less frequent contact with the judicial system. More broadly, a well-educated citizenry is critical to sustaining our democracy and achieving our national ideals of equal opportunity, social mobility, economic growth, and international competitiveness.1
In many communities, the promise of a high-quality education remains unfulfilled. Disruptions from COVID-19, an unprecedented teacher shortage, and resistance to examining the limitations of existing educational practices
compound the challenge.
At the same time, the skills landscape is shifting rapidly, forcing organizations and workers to focus on systems to reskill and upskill the workforce at scale.2 As both the public and private sectors look to address these obstacles, efforts are focused on supporting students through pandemic response and recovery, tackling opportunity and achievement gaps, making higher education and skills attainment more inclusive and affordable, and ensuring that all education pathways lead to successful careers.
Vistria’s Knowledge & Learning Solutions investment themes seek to address challenges across the continuum of education.
Strategic investments in K-12 core instruction, supplemental enrichment, workforce development, human capital management, information services, and learning media businesses position us to contribute to better outcomes for current and future generations of students and workers.
