The 2008 Speak Up Survey Ends Soon!
Last Day to Participate: December 19th http://www.tomorrow.org/speakup/
Students, teachers and parents have the chance to have their voices heard in Washington D.C. and in state capitals on creating the ultimate school, technology use in learning and 21st century skills by taking part in the national Speak Up survey. The findings will be shared with Congress and the new Administration in March 2009.
"As we prepare for the new President, a new Congress and many new Governors around the country, it is more important than ever for teachers, students and parents to have a voice in the new national discussions about 21st century education," said Julie Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow. "Don't let the ideas of your students, teachers, parents and administrators be left out of this landmark national project. Voting on election day is just one step in helping share our democracy."
The 2008 online survey - open now through December 19th for all K-12 students, parents, teachers and administrators at http://www.tomorrow.org/speakup/ - offers the largest collection of authentic, unfiltered input on education and technology from those 'on the ground' in the schools.
Individual participation and responses provided in the Speak Up survey are completely confidential and completing the online survey takes only 15 minutes. The Speak Up surveys are open to every public and private school and district in the United States, American schools on military bases and other interested schools worldwide.
Since 2003, more than 1.2 million K-12 students, teachers, and parents from more than 14,000 schools in all 50 states have participated in Speak Up. The online survey is facilitated by Project Tomorrow (formerly known as NetDay) and supported by many of our nation's most innovative companies, foundations and nonprofit organizations including CDW-G, SMART Technologies, PASCO scientific, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Wimba and 1105 Media Education Group.
