This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a circular letter from the Ministry of Education (Upper Secondary Education Directorate) laying down guiding regulations for the orientation of headmasters and interested student bodies concerning student participation through student councils and cooperation councils. Students must be encouraged to involve themselves in the organization of the activities of their school, and thus given the opportunity to see their viewpoints respected, they will learn to respect others' ideas and responsibility for their own acts. Student councils should work independently and on their own responsibility after receiving assistance and guidance from the school authorities in establishing their organization. In cases of disagreement between the authorities and the student council, the headmaster has the power of decision, which may be appealed to the Ministry. A permanent cooperation committee should be appointed at each school comprising of the headmaster, two faculty members and the chairman of the teachers' council, and two students and the chairman of the students' council. This committee should work out disciplinary regulations. All pupils attending the school may vote for members of the student council. (Author/GDB)
