NBC’s Education Nation puts the spotlight on students

Education policy is an ever-polarizing issue where students, the real victims of the system’s failures, are often ignored or entirely forgotten.

NBC’s Education Nation is putting the focus where it belongs and amplifying the voice of education’s most important constituents, the students, with the broadcast of its first-ever Student Town Hall on a special edition of MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Show.

Harris-Perry’s believes this is an important conversation to have sharing that, “Far too often we talk ‘about’ young people without bothering to talk ‘to’ young people. Students know what inspires them, what challenges them, what impedes their progress and what facilitates their learning. We cannot have a fully informed conversation about education reform, without the perspective of students themselves.”

The esteemed panel includes high school student, 17-year-old Nikhil Goyal, who is the author of One Size Does Not Fit All: A Student Assessment of School.

Viewing details
Tune in Sunday, September 23 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST to hear students from across the country sharing their ideas about education and how it will effect their future.
