Lenka Štěpánová

Teach Live, former President of Czech High School Students Union

Czech Republic

Lenka Štěpánová used to work for the Czech High School Students Union for almost her whole high school life. During the time of her involvement she strived for the students to become an inherent part of the public discussion on education and for student rights. Lenka herself has led student campaigns on implementing student evaluations of teaching into the educational system, or increasing the public spending on education in the country. This resulted in the government's promise of additional 30 billion Czech Crowns to be allocated in the state budget in 2019. She now works for Teach Live, focusing on transforming the educational system through well-trained teachers and educational leaders.
