Awakened Minds: Youth Voice & the Future of School

Education reform has made great strides, yet we are still systematically failing to serve 30% of students and leaving them out of the dialogue about the future of school. Our panel brings together young changemakers from YouthBuild USA who struggled to thrive in “traditional schools” and chose a different path. These students will engage us in a dialogue about their personal journeys, their aspirations for the future of schools, and how they want young people to be engaged in education reform.
