The Role of Leaders in Enabling Student Voice
Mitra, Dana; Serriere, Stephanie; Stoicovy, Donnan
Management in Education, v26 n3 p104-112 Jul 2012
This article explores how leadership can help to enable student voice to occur in schools. We find that the relationship between teachers and the school leader is a critical context for enabling voice. Specifically, we find that the following concepts were important for efforts to enable and foster student voice: (1) clear vision of school that is incorporated deeply into practice as "the way we do things here"; (2) allowing opt-in strategies for teachers when possible; (3) recognizing that implementation across classrooms and personnel will vary depending on individual contexts, beliefs, and experiences. (Contains 1 figure and 1 note.)
