"Speak Up" Parent Technology Survey
Speak Up is the first survey designed to help parents share their ideas directly with schools and national policymakers. As key stakeholders, Speak Up provides parents with a mechanism for expressing their views to the administrators at their child(ren)’s school and district about key issues impacting their child(ren)'s education. By participating in Speak Up, parents are expressing their views to a wider audience of local, state, and nationalpolicy makers as well as the business community—and contributing to the national dialog about science, technology, and preparing students for the 21st century workforce.
