Share Your Voice

What is Speak Up?
Speak Up is a national initiative of Project Tomorrow (formerly known as NetDay). Since fall 2003, the annual Speak Up project has collected and reported on the views of over 3 million K-12 students, teachers, administrators and parents representing over 30,000 schools in all 50 states. 
The Speak Up National Research Project dataset represents the largest collection of authentic, unfiltered stakeholder input on education, technology, 21st century skills, schools of the future, and science and math instruction. Education, business and policy leaders report using the data regularly to inform federal, state and local education programs. For additional information, visit www.tomorrow.org
