Children as Decision Makers in Education : Sharing Experiences Across Cultures Hardback
Edited by Sue Cox, Anna Robinson-Pant, Caroline Dyer, Michele Schweisfurth
A well-edited collection of case studies showing different experiences from around the world that involve children in decisions regarding their own education.
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 is concerned with 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 fascinating collection is forward-looking, bringing together cross-cultural experiences and supporting individuals or groups to work collaboratively in the future.
