My Voice: The Student Perspective

student outcomes

June 21, 2018 - Lawmakers and community leaders across New Mexico have debated for decades about how to improve educational outcomes in our state. But how often do adults bring in students to talk about what they see and how they would change the education system?

New Mexico PBS teamed up with KUNM and Generation Justice to conduct listening sessions (link to doc on "listening sessions") with students about their experiences in education and the ideas they would like to see explored to improve experiences in the classroom.

In August 2017, Generation Justice led listening sessions with students from schools across Albuquerque at the YES conference in Albuquerque.

Here’s a summary of what we found: My Voice

What Would Improve Your Education Experience?

June 22, 2018 - Students across New Mexico are experiencing the challenges that policy makers discuss year after year but their perspective is often missing from media coverage of education reform. 

New Mexico in Focus recently teamed up with Working Classroom to look at education issues with a group of Albuquerque students. After an introduction to interviewing and broadcast production, they sat down in studio for a conversation about the ways they would like to improve education. 

Working Classroom cultivates the artistic, civic, and academic minds of youth through in-depth arts projects with contemporary artists to amplify historically ignored voices, resist systemic injustices, and imagine a more equitable society.
