Learners and families should have increased participation in shaping legislation and policy.

While there is some learner and family participation at school or class levels, the evidence shows their participation at policy level is limited. Participation at this level must be genuine and not tokenistic. It should actively include the many individuals who have not yet been able to influence policy-level decisions that affect them, their peers, their schools and their communities.

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