"Youth Talk, Let’s Listen” - Students Talk About Education Today

Source: NYSUT Newswire

New York State United Teachers and the Urban Arts Experience, Inc. (UAE) are proud to present the "Youth Talk, Let's Listen" forum featuring area youth from Albany, Mohonasen and Schenectady discussing their personal experiences in education.

The purpose of the forum is to provide our students a venue to discuss current educational and social topics from their perspective, as well as provide stakeholders and policymakers with feedback from those who are being directly impacted by their decisions.

The structured forum will include students of all ages engaging in thoughtful conversations about learning in the classroom, relationships with educators, the school culture, testing and other related topics.

The audience will have an opportunity to better understand our youth and their experiences. Please join us in supporting our students!
