Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources for Students and Teachers

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Student Voice is committed to addressing the educational inequity exacerbated by this health crisis through rapid response advocacy campaigns and digital organizing. We will provide critical community space among social distancing, educate young people on the relationship between systemic injustice and the contemporary education system and help student organizers base build through coalition work for long-term, substantive action beyond this health crisis.

Student Voice has convened a coalition of over a dozen youth-led education organizations to craft student principles to ensure education equity is prioritized as schools reopen in the fall amidst COVID-19. The Education Justice Collective has authored ten guiding principles for reopening, called the Move School Forward campaign. To sign on to the campaign and view the full principles, case studies, accompanying research and calls to action for young people, visit the Move School Forward website.

  • As the pandemic spurs rapid change, our network of student advocates is responding to the issues most pertinent to young people. Move School Forward is the latest in our series of rapid response advocacy campaigns and details student crafted principles for justice in our schools.
  • Since our #TestOptionalNow campaign launched in March, nearly 200 universities have gone test-optional and the College Board issued guidance to academic institutions requesting testing flexibility. We’re continuing to call on students to support a more equitable college admissions system by signing our petition and using our letter writing guide to encourage a university near you to go test optional.
  • In partnership with the Future Coalition’s daily Social Community Series, we are providing weekly webinars and community building sessions for young people nationwide. See our full schedule below.
  • We are partnering with networks, organizations and local advocates to host intergenerational dialogues about the future of schools. Email us if you’re interested in collaborating to host one in your community.
