Next Week's Twitter Chat

02/09 -

President Obama’s 2015 State of the Union announced new education initiatives and established his administration’s strong commitment to improving access to and quality of education in the U.S. This Monday’s Twitter chat featured student and teacher reactions.

Q1: What did Obama say that surprised you, if anything? Was there anything you expected but didn’t see, especially related to education?

Q2: What do you think about the free community college plan Obama announced in the State of the Union?

Q3: In less than 10 years, 2 in 3 jobs will need some higher ed. Is free community college the ideal/affordable solution? If not, what is?

About the #StuVoice Twitter Chats

Before Student Voice became a non-profit, it was a movement started by a hashtag. Every Monday since August 2012, the #StuVoice hashtag has convened students, teachers and policy makers to discuss current events, education issues and student-interest stories about kids and their communities around the world. These discussions, while critical to the groundwork of our organization, have also and more importantly found a bigger purpose: to give students a platform on which their voices can be heard.

Since our humble beginnings two years ago, the #StuVoice Twitter chats have been home to many memorable conversations, including one about education policy joined by U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, and another about the government’s push for STEM students with Acting Director for the Office of STEM at the U.S. Department of Education, Camsie McAdams.

The #StuVoice chats continue to garner attention from education thought leaders and change makers, and remain among the most prominent education chats on Twitter today.
