2006 NetDay Speak Up Survey

NetDay Speak Up is an annual national research project that collects the voices and views of key stakeholders in education on topics such as educational technology, science, math, and 21st workforce skills. Over the past three years the project has collected the viewpoints of over 562,000 K-12 students from all 50 states, as well as 26,000 teachers. For the first time this year, Speak Up for Parents has been added.

The results of the surveys are shared with participating schools and districts so that they can use the data for planning and community discussion. In addition, the findings and data are used by local, state, and national organizations, business groups, and government agencies to inform new programs and polices. This year Net Day will also be providing states with state level data.

The Speak Up dates are Wednesday, November 1 - Thursday, November 30, 2006. Please visit the NetDay Speak Up How-to guide for ideas on how to promote the Speak Up event at your school. You can print out a flier to post at your school or use our email text to send reminders to your teachers.

Your input on the survey is very important. SETDA has promised to share the results with members of Congress.
