Including student voice and adequate support for them to be involved in decision making is one of the best things we can do for Philly's students. They should have the opportunity to share their experience and insight on decisions that impact them.

How can we transform our schools if the experts don't have decision making power?!?!!

Thanks for adding your voice.

“Nothing about us without us!”

Students should  be part of these conversations and have actual power in decision making. It’s absurd to undemocratically make decisions that affect students without them being central to the process. Proud of these young people!

Thanks for adding your voice.

I am signing because our Board of Representatives needs to be "representative" of the people it serves.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I believe student voices are required for school reform because they are the most impacted by SD policies.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Even though I graduated out of this school system, there were a lack of student voices and the ones that spoke weren’t taken seriously enough by the district.
