1.  How has it impacted your teaching or role as a teacher

    or impact your learning as a student

  2. I disagree with posing student and teacher rights as binary opposites. Every student, in every public school in America, deserves a quality teacher. Every teacher deserves to be treated like a true professional—which includes having due process before losing one’s position or teaching credentials. Doing the latter actually helps ensure the former.

  4. (via Support Open Road Learning Community for Teens | Education on GOOD)

    Open Road Learning Community for Teens is trying to remedy a very basic problem in education: our system of schooling are not design to reach all kids. Open Road works from the premise that the greatest learning happens when young people’s autonomy and desire to excel at something they feel is worthwhile is supported by strong relationships based in mutual respect and trust. Need support to grow and support more low-income students.

  12. Like a train, I was forced to follow the same track day after day. I’m not saying that I hated learning; knowledge is important to me. But in these classes that I was taking, when we finally got to a lesson I liked, we would study it for maybe three or five days and then move on. This bothered me because I felt like there was more to what we were learning than what teachers had time to tell us. Then I noticed how crowded our classes were — usually about forty kids per class. How could a teacher possibly give a decent lesson with forty to fifty kids in small classroom? I couldn’t focus on the work I was given because everyone wouldn’t just shut up and be thankful that we had the opportunity to learn something new!

  14. Student Voice

    Student Voice is a grassroots support network that serves to aid and empower students in their efforts to be heard and earn their rightful seat at the table.

    It is a movement for students, by students, connecting and organizing America’s most underrepresented population – the students. We aim not to change a culture that ignores student voice, but rather create a culture that embraces it.

    Through the utilization of social media, millions of people have taken notice of students speaking out using the #StuVoice hashtag, thousands have read student entries on this very website, and we have become aware of hundreds of student-led protests across the United States alone.

    Student Voice aims to unite these voices into a powerful unified entity.

    We take no stance on any issue other than those that are supported by students.

    Students from all different socioeconomic, geographic, and racial backgrounds connect through Student Voice both virtually and face-to-face. These relationships have empowered students to devise youth councils and organize education policy advocacy campaigns.

    From Fargo, North Dakota to New York City and as far as Nairobi, Kenya, students are sharing their unique perspectives and differing views on suitable solutions to improve education and public policy at-large worldwide. No story is left unheard and no perspective is left unaccounted for.

    Together we are uniting and centralizing the Student Voice. Together we are enhancing our voices and empowering our peers. Together we are creating change at a local level, on an international scale.

    We are students. We are change-makers.
