Build capacity for meaningful participation of and active listening to learners and families in educational decision-making.

Policy-makers have a responsibility, not only to facilitate opportunities for more active participation at all education system levels, but also to build learners’ and families’ capacity to be able to participate. Policy-makers must provide learners and families with the appropriate support to develop knowledge, skills and understanding on how to participate actively. Policy-makers also need to access opportunities to understand how to set up a safe environment, listen responsibly and interpret the views expressed.

Voices into Action explores ways to develop a more participatory approach to educational decision-making, with learners and families at the centre.
