Students have a great opportunity to use their collective voice to stand up to practices in education that do not help them to be creative, innovative, mindful, critical thinkers. Students deserve education that is passion and project based that has a connection to life and to their community.
Please encourage your students to use their voice to make change, even if it means occupying classrooms and gyms, even if it means walking out of class. Students have power to make change, teachers have the power to make change, parents have the power to make change. We just need to come together around education transformation!
Please reblog this and join us by submit your voice to the ever expanding collections of power messages of change!

I occupy education because I’m tired of failure
I occupy education because I believe in real reforms and second chances
I occupy education because I work to bring students to the table
I occupy education because I’ve been told that I’m a failure because I’m 17 in the 9th grade. Even though I’ve been declare advanced in all core subject areas except for mathamatics.
I occupy education because I believe its time we reclaim education.
I occupy education because I believe everyone’s voice counts, not just the 1%’s.
