What features of Freckle are free? What do I get with Freckle Premium Edition?

We believe in giving teachers the best tools to teach, and we believe all teachers should have the ability to give their students the best education possible. Thus, many of Freckle's features for Math, ELA, Social Studies, and Science are and will remain completely free for teachers. 

However, upgrading to Freckle Premium Edition will provide teachers with unlimited access to all content and reporting, allowing them to pinpoint exactly how to support each student and providing the ability to pair that support with the perfect piece of content.
