What Do Students Have to Do with Educational Leadership? Making a Case for Centering Student Voice
Lac, Van T.; Mansfield, Katherine Cumings
Journal of Research on Leadership Education, v13 n1 p38-58 Mar 2018
The purpose of this article is to illustrate the value of educational leaders intentionally including students in shaping the policies and practices that affect young people's schooling experiences. First, we share the literature on student voice and introduce Principal Orientations for Critical Youth Educational Leadership as a conceptual model, advocating ways leaders can engage young people in school governance. Second, we share an empirical example from our research that holds promise to build caring, equitable, and responsive classrooms and schools by centering students' voices. Finally, we consider what our findings mean for educational leadership preparation programs.
