Most Students Can’t Vote, But Their Voice Is Loud and Clear

Our students across the country have been taking center stage in the past few weeks by leading efforts for change. They have served as role models not only to one another but to the adults who are in positions of leadership, especially those in elected office.

At a local level, Dallas students have also voiced their thoughts. After discussing the role of the school board in Dallas ISD with middle and high school students, our young leaders have some things they’d like to share with our elected trustees.

Thank You...

With students advocating for technology, more electives, funding for schools, and equity across schools - it is critical to keep these leading voices front and center.
