"Student Voice is a Movement...not a program." Russell Quaglia
Adults like to talk about school. The other day I was walking through the grocery store and a woman who happened to be blocking the lane was complaining about her child's school to a friend...for all to hear. I swear she took a second glance at me as if she knew that I was an educator.
Teachers and school leaders do it as well. They debate and discuss about how students learn, or try to figure out ways to better engage students who just don't seem to like to talk in school. There is a lot of problem-solving that happens around student engagement, but unfortunately a very important stakeholder is often left out of the discussion...the student.
