Adversity in their educational experiences can foster resiliency in students. Teachers, curriculum, peers, school buildings and the entirety of the education system all influence students’ abilities to be persistent in school, overcome challenges to student voice, and building Meaningful Student Involvement. They develop hope for the future of schools.
Through student/adult partnerships, students get to discover the educators in their school aren’t just caring adults, but that they are capable of treating students in just and appropriate ways reflected in the characteristics of student/adult partnerships. Resiliency allows students to become more capable of withstanding negative educational experiences and secure their commitment to lifelong learning.
