Rachel Belin

...
Rachel Burg Belin is the founding director of the Prichard Committee Student Voice Team an initiative that elevates the voices of Kentucky youth on the classroom impact of education policies and supports students as partners in improving Kentucky schools. Among other accomplishments, the group introduced and advanced HB 236, legislation to change Kentucky state law to add a student to the superintendent screening committees; engaged students in a statewide campaign to restore school funding to pre-recessionary level; and led an investigation into some of the challenges making postsecondary transitions inequitable.
Rachel first came to the Prichard Committee in 2002 as the development director after serving as policy director for the Kentucky state treasurer. She was drawn to the Prichard Committee by its national reputation for engaging citizens in education policy.
As a certified high school teacher, Rachel taught social studies and the Facing History and Ourselves civic-engagement curriculum which uses the Holocaust as the central case study in New York, Florida and Kentucky classrooms and has spent over three decades working with young people outside the schools to use the media to amplify their voices in public life.
Inspired first by her experience as a middle-school-aged reporter for the then nationally-syndicated Children's Express news service, Rachel has since launched and led a series of student-voice-oriented initiatives in a variety of contexts. She spearheaded Boston's Youth Voice Collaborative, which trained teams of urban youth as political reporters for the Democratic and Republican National Conventions; Kid Company News, a Peabody-Award-Winning radio feature featuring youth journalists that aired for six years on WBZ-AM; and the Youth News Team, consisting of Central Kentucky teens and parents which produced two regional Emmy-Award-winning public radio series based on original education policy research.
Rachel received a B.A. from Harvard College and an M.A.T. from the University of Rochester.
