For far too long, the US education system has been a system where the voices of students, parents, teachers, and education advocates are barely heard. With the little that is heard, the federal and state governments do not make drastic nationwide changes to fix major issues that have been some of the biggest concerns among all that were mentioned above. This book is divided into two parts. The first part looks at various major issues as well as the future of the US education system. Secondly, we hear from nine students, including the author himself as a student on personal narratives and specific issues that the narrators write about using their own personal experiences. Take a step into the minds of students and get a perspective from students and the issues they care most about. It?s time the government heard the voices of the students and make the changes we, the students, ask. And this is only the start. We are now in the century and a place in time where the students have become the government of the US education system, and the government has become the students of the system. It?s time for a change!
