Young people say that they have ideas but no one hears them. Last summer, I had a session with high school students and they said:
- School staffs don’t ask students their opinions or if they do ask, they don’t listen. They gave some examples including food service and a tardy policy.
- Students need to keep trying to make their voices heard.
Ask for an opinion
Listen to the answer
Repeat what was said
Don’t express your opinion
