Project Tomorrow collects data and feedback from students, parents, teachers, administrators, and pre-service teachers about education issues through their annual Speak Up survey. This data is then distributed to the schools, districts, and states providing them with valuable information about the thoughts of all the different stakeholders in the school community. The results of the nationwide survey are shared with key decision makers and policy influencers at annual Congressional Briefings for both the House & Senate. These survey results are very important because they help stimulate local, state, and national discussions about education trends that in turn help to shape education policy and funding decisions. Julie Evans and her team do a wonderful job of collecting, analyzing, and sharing this data at conferences, webinars, and briefings.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the excellent Speak Up data results they share out each year. I've worked closely with Project Tomorrow at several Congressional Briefings and conferences over the last several years.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand worldwide and compare data from many different countries
