Student Voice in Federal Policymaking
As of 2018, there were 53.1 million K-12 students in the United States. Despite students under the age of 18 comprising the largest population of educational stakeholders and being among the most affected by education policy decisions, they are rarely included in education governance at any level. Federal policymakers must meaningfully involve students in all stages of the policymaking process to develop policies that help all students succeed, especially students from communities with fewer resources and other marginalized backgrounds whom federal policies purport to help.
Please join the Center for American Progress, student activists, and federal policymakers to discuss the importance of student voice in federal policymaking.
