Student forums: Large gatherings of students focused on improving schools, also called student congresses, can help create momentum for Meaningful Student Involvement and an initial surge of interest in engaging student voice throughout education.
Student forums can be student-led and student-driven, or adult-led and adult-driven. They can focus on serious, substantial and meaningful issues to improve schools; they can also fully impact research, practice and outcomes throughout schools.
Put into context, data collected from student forums can shape school reform efforts and more.
