Black Student Voice: "We don’t need teachers to tell us what we need.”

Black Lives Matter is a movement that hit many different places beyond the black and brown communities. Education Week recorded the message of 10 black high school students countrywide about how they think issues of race and racism should be handled in school.

The students express what they want educators to know to improve their school experience. Participants also discuss the impact of school security, and their experiences talking about race in classrooms.

The students believe they need a seat at the table allowing them to identify school policies that lead to inequities and be the advocates for things like representation within curricula and counseling supports.
