Student Voice from the inside and outside: The Positioning of Challengers
Mitra, Dana L.
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v9 n4 p315-328 Oct 2006
Before youth can be accepted as important players in school decision making, the concept of student voice must gain acceptance among powerful stakeholders in the school. Using social movement theory as a lens, this article examines the consequences of positioning a student voice effort inside or outside of school walls. Positioning influences the legitimacy, sustainability, and scope of changes that a student voice initiative can pursue. (Contains 5 notes.)
