Felt Tip Pens and School Councils: Children's Participation Rights in Four English Schools.
Wyse, Dominic
Children & Society, v15 n4 p209-18 Sep 2001
Investigated the nature of children's participation in their education in two primary and two secondary schools in England. Found that children's opportunities to express their views were extremely limited even where school councils existed. Concluded that the goal of active citizenship espoused by recent national curriculum developments will remain illusive unless educational practice changes to focus on school processes. (Author/KB)
