HACK 6: center school around children

create schools that work for kids

Our students have important insights and valuable perspectives, and from our vantage point they are our most important "clients," so listening to our kids and acting on their ideas should be a priority. We may have to get comfortable with relinquishing some of the control, but amplifying student voice and empowering students to have a say in the future of their school and their learning will ensure that our schools work for kids.

    Discussion Questions

    • How do you amplify student voice in your school?
    • What role do stakeholders play in decision making at your school?
    • Are students able to own learning in your school? How?
