Mission Statement

Our Education's mission is to improve K-12 education in America by engaging and empowering students themselves in a national movement for better schools. The organization is founded on the belief that the best chance we have to get the kinds of schools we need in this country is for millions of American students to call for and lead a national effort to secure them.

Description

Our Education runs two primary programs. The first is a national youth engagement campaign to build student awareness, interest, and action regarding current efforts to improve their schools. This youth engagement campaign is run primarily through the vehicle of our national student petition to make high quality education an American right.
Our Education's second initiative is a local-based Student Voice Project which works to increase youth involvement and capacity to contribute to policy discussions and reform efforts at the high school, school district, and state levels.

Would you recommend Our Education?

I have experienced personally the failure of our current school systems, and believe that change is essential as well as empowering students themselves. In fact, giving students power of their own education actually provokes a sense of personal responsibility which is lacking currently. I myself have had to take the long road to pursue my education. Even though we all are exposed to different opportunities, experiences and social factors, we can use our experiences as guides to help others that may need it.
