Abu Dhabi, UAE & DURHAM, N.C.  – Dec. 14, 2021 – Thousands of teachers in the United Arab Emirates and the United States will now have access to powerful data to inform math instruction as the result of a new partnership between the global K-12 education technology company Alef Education and MetaMetrics®.
