Detroit students have been denied educational success due to poor educational policies that has failed Detroit students. These poor educational policies have blame teachers, parents and students, ignoring the true culprit. Detroit don't have failing schools; Detroiters are subjected to failed educational policies from broken school systems. Detroit children and Detroit communities deserve better. The Detroit LIFE Coalition will host its first "Listening Projects". The Listening Project seeks to highlight how people's daily lives, their hopes for the future and their communities are impacted by school closings.
The goals of the Listening Projects are to:
1. Effectively document the impact of current education policy on the lives of families and their communities for local, national and international organizing efforts.
2. Unify the voices of an emerging national education organizing network that is working to address institutional racism that informs local and national education policy.
3. Collect authentic stories (qualitative evidence) to align peer reviewed research (quantitative evidence) strengthening the demand for the Sustainable School Success proposal as a viable solution to help improve struggling schools.
4. Make the connection between viable, effective neighborhood schools and healthy, safe prosperous communities.
Detroit Youth Report’s Detroit Life Coalition is part of a national alliance of community based, and youth organizations dedicated to addressing the lack of investment in young people’s success on a local, state and federal level.
