SOS calls upon the people to participate in this collaborative brainstorming and platform writing session on student voice.

  • What part should the student perspective play in guiding education policy?
  • What action plans can be coordinated by adults to help support student activism?

We seek children, parents, grandparents, primary caregivers, teachers, teaching assistants, PTAs/PTOs, principals, assistant principals, administrative staff, superintendents, school bus drivers, maintenance staff, cafeteria workers, paraprofessionals, professors, researchers, and any concerned citizen who wishes to volunteer to represent the diverse range of school communities.

As part of SOS, your personal experience and expertise is needed to help compose a democratically-created platform that can be presented to policy makers across the nation.
