Cox, Sue; Robinson-Pant, Anna
Education 3-13, v33 n2 p14-19 Jun 2005
As part of citizenship education, school councils have been set up in primary schools based on adult models of democratic committees. This article looks at children's and teachers' perspectives on their school councils and goes on to analyse the ways in which alternative strategies for addressing the constraints identified were developed in three Norfolk primary schools.
