Our Education

Our Education, or OurEd, was a national nonprofit organization based in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

About

The mission of OurEd was to improve K-12 education in America by engaging and empowering students themselves in a national movement for better schools. The organization was founded on the belief that the best chance we have to get the kinds of schools we need in this country is for millions of American students to call for and lead a national effort to secure them.

Activities

Our Education ran two primary programs. The first was a national youth engagement campaign to build student awareness, interest, and action regarding current efforts to improve their schools. That youth engagement campaign was run primarily through the vehicle of our national student petition to make high quality education an American right. Our Education’s second initiative was a local-based Student Voice Project which worked to increase youth involvement and capacity to contribute to policy discussions and reform efforts at the high school, school district, and state levels.
