Dear Friends, Family and Education Activists,

For those of you who do not know, many of us have been working hard planning several incredible events. One of which will be on October 19th, where adults will be taking a standardized test that we have created. More information will be released later this week on students4ourschools.org/takethetest and facebook.com/students4ourschools.

I am proud to announce we have someone that will be backing up our initial funds for the film on September 1st, so we are making a HUGE fundraising effort.

From now until August 30th, we could use your help with donations and spreading the word. We have big ambitions to show the student voice in education, but we need your help to fund it!

Not only do we want you to donate, but we want your friends and family to know what you are donating to. You can easily post this on your Facebook page, but you can also invite them to our event page so they can see who else is donating to the film.

With your donation, you can earn great prizes including your name on the big screen, a hat or t-shirt!

Our Facebook event page to fundraise: https://www.facebook.com/events/564453593614869/

With your help, we can show the issues in education and put the student voice on the big screen.

Thank you,
Alex Kacsh
Jeffco Open Student and Director of Students 4 Our Schools

We believe that we can change what's wrong in education only when we understand the problem.
We are making a documentary that will give voice to students, parents and teachers - the people whose lives are directly affected by public education.
This video was made last month to support the CO student walkout on the standardized test:


My name is Alex Kacsh, and I am a high school student. For the last few years, I have been leading a political movement in the state of Colorado to improve our education system. I go to an unconventional public school that focuses on individualizing each child's education. My school has allowed me to pursue my passions, travel the world, and try new experiences.
My involvement in grass-roots efforts to change education gives me the chance to speak with students, parents, educators and policy makers around the country. I'm thankful for that chance, butwhat I learn about the real problems facing schools, parents, and students remains largely unknown to the people it affects the most.
That's why I want to make this film - a documentary that will share all that I learn about politics, education, and what is happening to the youth in this country - a chance for you to hear from us, the students, and hopefully begin a conversation for positive change.
Creating a film does get costly! With your donation, we will be purchasing a camera, boom mic, and external hard drives so we can store our work!
Check out Alex's award winning short film about his unconventional school:
