Student Input Improves Behavior, Fosters Leadership
Brasof, Marc
Phi Delta Kappan, v93 n2 p20-24 Oct 2011
Including students in school governance isn't just a way to teach them about civics, it's a smarter way to run a school. Schools tend to govern themselves as a single-loop learning organization. The better model is a double-loop organization that would promote greater participation, deliberation, feedback and, ultimately, more buy-in from students. The author discusses a case where such a model proved crucial in ameliorating a difficult situation involving student behavior.
