Speak Up is an annual national research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow. The purpose of the project is to:
- Collect and report the unfiltered feedback from students, parents, educators and business/community leaders on key educational issues.
- Use the data to stimulate local conversations.
- Raise national awareness about the importance of including the viewpoints of students, parents, and teachers in the education dialogue.
Quantitative survey results are available to participating schools and districts, online, free-of-charge, so that they can use the data for planning and community discussion. National findings are released through a variety of venues, including: a Congressional Briefing in Washington, DC, national and regional conferences, e-mail distribution, Project Tomorrow website, and our Speak Up partners. Local, state and national stakeholders report using Speak Up data to inform their new programs and policies.
Surveys available online October 2 through December 20, 2013 at http://www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2013
