Children as Decision Makers in Education
Collapse All Sections

Since the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, there has been an increasing recognition globally that children need to have more say in their education. Children as Decision Makers in Education looks at how children can actively participate in decision-making. It builds upon previous research into student voice and decision-making, citizenship education in the school curriculum and work with children as researchers. This insightful collection is forward-looking, bringing together cross-cultural experiences and supporting individuals or groups to work collaboratively in the future.
