Project Tomorrow's annual Speak Up survey on technology's role in schools is now open

"Students, parents, teachers, and now—for the first time—K-12 administrators are invited to take part in Speak Up 2007, an annual survey that seeks to determine what is needed to give students a top-notch, 21st-century education.

Administered by Project Tomorrow (formerly known as NetDay), a national nonprofit group focused on improving science, math, and technology education, Speak Up gives education stakeholders a chance to make their voices heard and contribute to an ongoing discussion about technology’s role in the curriculum.

'National and state leaders look for the Speak Up data each year to gain insight from education stakeholders about how to fix America’s education system in order to ensure our continued global competitiveness. The survey is an avenue for everyone—students, parents, teachers, and school administrators—to participate in this national conversation,' said Julie Evans, chief executive of Project Tomorrow.

'At the same time, we also provide participating schools and districts with their own Speak Up data to inform and impact local policies, programs, and budgeting and purchasing decisions,' Evans said.

All public, private, parochial, and charter schools in the United States and Canada are eligible to participate. Individual responses are kept confidential, and the online survey can be accessed any time until Dec. 15."
