Our Vision

Students Leading Education (SLED) is a movement

of students, teachers, administrators, and community members with the purpose of leveraging student voice and choice in the classroom. 


Our Mission

Ignite a passion for learning

We do this by:

• Empowering students to have a voice in education

• Assisting teachers’ use of technology in the classroom

• Assisting districts in their journey to an Immersive Learning experience


Why we are here

SLED exists because we saw a significant need to improve and support Education in America. The tools that our students have at their disposal and the amount of information that is readily available has created a need for a new set of skills in today’s world.

Students must become passionate, lifelong learners who have the ability to problem solve and manage an unknown future. Unfortunately, the system is antiquated - leaving our students unprepared and disengaged.


Our Origins

Students Leading Education was founded in 2014 by iSchool Initiative, a professional development consulting firm, with the goal of empowering students to lead and affect their own learning.
