As we debate the ins and outs of how to improve student “achievement,” let’s remember to pause and hear what students have to say. The sooner we give the growing movement of students advocating for their vision of transforming education a welcomed and honored place at the table, the sooner we will move closer to equity in our schools.
Below are two powerful videos by students — Tele’jon Quinn, a high schooler reflecting on the 12-step brainwash camp & Suli Breaks, a recent college graduate unpacking the difference between schooling and learning.
Also, keep your eye on this rising star: Nikhil Goyal, student author of “One Size Does Not Fit All”.
