  8. The Power of Voice in Schools: Listening, Learning, and Leading Together

    For nearly four decades, Russ Quaglia has been laying the groundwork to inform, reform and transform schools through student voice. That deep commitment is reflected in this inspirational book. Quaglia and his coauthors at the Quaglia Institute for School Voice & Aspirations deftly synthesise the thoughts and feelings of hundreds of thousands of stakeholders and offer a vision for schools where everyone’s voice matters. They posit that students, teachers, administrators and parents must work and learn together in ways that promote deep understanding and creativity. Making this collaborative effort successful, however, requires widespread recognition that all stakeholders have something to teach and they all have a role to play in moving the entire school forward.

Emphasising students’ social, emotional and academic learning as the hub for all action in high-performing, high-poverty schools, the authors describe how educators can work within the expanded framework to address the needs of all students, but particularly those who live in poverty.
