The Role(s) of Student Voice in 14-19 Education Policy Reform: Reflections on Consultation and Participation
Elwood, Jannette
London Review of Education, v11 n2 p97-111 2013
Certain policy areas with considerable impact on young people's educational experiences and achievements, notably assessment and qualifications, do not involve consultation with young people to any meaningful extent. Findings from a national study, which included focus groups with 243 students in the 14-19 phase, are presented with respect to student consultation and participation in such policy areas. A lack of meaningful consultation regarding what students see as "higher level" policy agendas was found (such as qualifications provision, choice or structure). Students are therefore "voiceless" in relation to major qualifications reforms.
