The Pearson Foundation today announced a new effort to survey and study students' personal views of their academic learning experiences. The Million Voice Project aims for a substantial research-based understanding of student attitudes and experiences in the American education system.

Available at www.millionvoice.org, the survey organizes student participation by school, and reports this confidential information back to school leaders. Survey results will be available to American schools and school districts at no cost.
