Student Voice Transforming Relationships
Internationally, there has been great interest in supporting student voice (Fielding, 2012). Across Canada, projects have been funded at the secondary level to support increasing opportunities for students to contribute authentically to school improvement. In Ontario, student voice initiatives have historically acknowledged and tried to foster the engagement of older students in learning. Student voice in the SPEAKUP initiative, for example, is “about connecting what’s happening in the classroom to real-life experiences outside school,” with a focus on supporting students to shape their “learning environment while building skills and abilities” and “preparing for active citizenship” (http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/students/speakup/).
