The Chicago-based company recruits teaching assistants to grade and offer feedback on K-12 writing assignments.

The Graide Network’s funding round was led by Network Ventures. Just over a quarter of US high school seniors can write proficiently (other US education stats paint a bleak picture of education and student preparedness.)

Other edtech startups are tackling the soft skills gap in the US: Colorado startup PAIRIN raised funding from Zoma Capital in December to improve critical thinking and socio-emotional skills for jobseekers.
