We are students: the ones who come to school every day, raise our hands withnsafe questions, and keep our heads down. Except, now we have a voice – a strongnvoice – to share our ideas through a global network.

A global platform for aggregated K-12 student voice? I love it!

Clay’s got his work cut out for him. As I’ve learned withnLeaderTalk, sustaining initial momentum and enthusiasm can bendifficult. Also, I think he needs more authors (maybe Sylvia Martinez and others can help?) andnhe’s going to have start thinking about a succession plan. Who will replacenthese students when they graduate? Will we follow this initial group of bloggersninto postsecondary education (HighernEd 2.0?) and beyond? The challenges are both daunting andnfascinating.

Clay, I hope you’re at NECC this year so I cannshake your hand. Nice work! Kudos also to the students. They are off to a greatnstart. May their voices become numerous and powerful…
