An inclusive education system cannot be realised unless all stakeholders are actively involved in its development. A major step to ensure this is to safeguard children’s and families’ right to participation and start designing policies with them, not just for them. The Agency’s Voices into Action (VIA) activity explores effective ways of including the voices of learners and families in decision-making.
This report provides a summary of the VIA activities, including a literature review, an analysis of previous Agency work, and relevant country examples. The report is addressed to policy-makers from Agency member countries’ ministries of education and other national stakeholders who work with learners and families.
