People’s Research is for high school and college students who are suffering from the effects of an educational system that has succumbed to the profit motive and is subjecting students to the dictates of profit over learning. The immediate goal is to arm students with the skills to pass through draconian dictates of the Academe in regard to research, which is produced as a means to benefit giant, multinational corporations. The long-term goal is to attract students to the People’s Movement as it addresses the decrepit educational system of the United States and seeks to return education to the people.

Any student seeking to get through the system quickly while juggling all the other aspects of their lives while also wishing to change the current structure will find People’s Research to be insightful, helpful, and inspiring.
