Nikhil Goyal, 18-year-old author of Once Size Does Not Fit All and all-around amazing young voice fighting for public education, gave a must-watch speech last weekend at the One Voice United rally in Albany, NY.
He gave special attention to the students across the country who are standing up and taking ownership of the issues affecting their schools and their education.
"My peers from Portland to Chicago to Providence to Newark to Philadelphia have been walking out of school. They've been boycotting. They've been protesting. They've been rallying against high-stakes testing, budget cuts and the corporate assault on public education. Whether it is gay rights, voting rights, women's rights, in every successful social movement it is young people leading the way and lighting the fire of outrage within us all."
