Since its inception five years ago, Speak Up, the national online research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow, has collected the views of over 1.2 million students, educators, and parents on key educational issues and shared them with local and national policymakers. It represents the largest collection of authentic, unfiltered stakeholder input on education, technology, twenty-first-century skills, schools of the future, and science instruction.
The Speak Up initiative has three primary goals: to collect and report on what key education stakeholders think about education, technology and twenty-first-century skills; to raise awareness about the importance of including student, educator, and parent voices in the national and local discussions; and to stimulate new local conversations and support school and community efforts to improve education for all students.
During the initiative, students, parents, teachers, and administrators will be able to join the local and national dialogue about key educational topics and provide their input. The campaign will run until December 19.
