Austin Voices for Education and Youth
We define a quality education as one that adequately prepares young people for higher education, citizenship, and the workforce.
The focus of the School Inequities Project is to analyze the disparity in how each high school prepares their students for higher education within the Austin Independent School District
We are highlighting disparity in order to bring about equitable change within our school district

We have high lighted disparities within AISD and we emphasize that in order to attain equity, student voices and needs must be heard. Through raising awareness of these disparities in our city we look to ignite positive change. Members of our community can work together to ensure that students, regardless of their demographics or school, are adequately prepared to succeed in higher education, citizenship, and the work force.
