“Hamilton” success boosts hip-hop curriculum company Flocabulary

Back in 2014, we profiled the company as it helped support schools switching over to the Common Core standards. Now, buoyed by the Hamilton halo, Flocabulary–profitable since 2008–has raised $1.5 million in convertible debt from investment firm Rethink Education. 

The funds will go toward “accelerating growth and reaching more students with the help of the right partners,” cofounder and CEO Alex Rappaport said in a statement.
