Vermont Legislature Honors Student Songwriters

"OUR TIME" SONG SPEAKS ABOUT STUDENT EMPOWERMENT THROUGH PERSONALIZED LEARNING, SUPPORTS VERMONT EDUCATION AGENDA

Montpelier, VT — On February 15, the Vermont House of Representatives voted on a resolution honoring the student-adult team that produces "Our Time": an original song and music video created to spark deeper, more critical discussion about the future of educational change in Vermont. The project’s goal was to engage students in articulating their vision for their education in response to Act 77, the 2015 legislation that allows students to accumulate graduation credits through “flexible pathways.” The resolution, HCR 42, was introduced by Chip Troiano (Caledonia-2) and passed by a unanimous vote.
