A lot of students attend public schools, paid for by their parents' taxes, and hate it. These public schools are made for these students and paid by the parents such that they would represent the most preferred technique of schooling by both parties — this is usually not the case.
There are only a handful of people that "call the shots" that really, anyone can call! The reason others, especially students, aren't calling shots, is because its an arduous and difficult struggle to inform the correct officials of thoughts, ideas, and complaints.
Redesign High School changes that. It makes it extremely simple to submit information to someone willing to write a letter to and contact the correct officials about your ideas and more. The platform is also developing to support the quantifying of fellow students' support for another's ideas by scanning ID cards.
