Can Schools Improve by Incorporating Students’ Ideas on Education?

From the Illinois Association of School Boards annual conference in Chicago, we talk with Superintendents and authors, Mike Lubelfeld, and Nick Polyak. In their second book and evolving the educational environment – we get “STUDENT VOICE, From Invisible to Invaluable”

While schools are managed by layers of educators and School Board members — the voice of students — who spend their days in the classrooms, knowing the quality of teachers, of lunches, of events on campus, are seldom heard. The authors tell us what they’ve learned in their research, and why students’ voices are a largely untapped resource in improving a school’s educational environment.
