High School Students on Education Policy

Submitted by: Youth Voices group for Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence

The Student Voice Team consists of 14 Central Kentucky high school students who were charged with making the case to the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence about the need to integrate students in the organization's education policy decision-making process. The group showed this video of final arguments at the end of a 30-minute Power Point presentation at the Prichard Committee's June 9, 2013 meeting at General Butler State Park in Carrollton, Kentucky. The youth were received with a standing ovation, a motion from the floor to acknowledge that the teens were warmly received, and a solemn promise from the Executive Director that the board would formally respond to their recommendations within the next month.
