Could each of us on the Co-op commit to finding a student voice to add to our group? I was sitting round a campfire last night with some kids who were complaining about not getting to talk about substantive issues in school, and I kept asking them when they were going to make a difference and do something rather than complain. One asked me if she began blogging would I help her get a readership and read it ahead of time to keep her from “making a fool of herself.” Of course I said yes, but I know my reading ahead of time isn’t necessary–she’s an amazing thinker!
What if we tried to find students who would share their ideas of the purpose of school and have a series of posts? Anyone interested?
