Where are the student voices in ed reform?


A growing coalition of young people claims that student voices are largely missing from discussions of education reform.

Andrew Brennen is 19 years old and for the past three years he’s been helping build a movement to get young people fired up about improving education. Today Brennen is a junior at the University of North Carolina and he’s also the field director of Student Voice, an organization that advocates for students. Last month, Brennen took part in a White House summit about the future of high schools. Over the coming year, Brennen will travel across the country to meet with students and help them advocate for changes in their schools.
