National Youth Summit Opening: Students' Voices (Video)
Public education across the country is being talked about by lots of folks, but those with the most to gain and most to lose -- students themselves -- are too often locked out of the national discussion. Now's the time for that to change.
On February 26, 2011, the Department of Education hosted a national youth summit to empower students and listen to what they had to say about education. This video was a recap of the youth listening tour that visited 9 cities across the country preceding the summit. The event was organized by Community Outreach Director Alberto Retana.
