The paper opens by asking sharp questions about the current vogue for
consulting students about various aspects of their experience of schooling. The unwitting manipulation often embedded in much of this activity is contrasted with a radical
approach known as ‘Students as Researchers.’ Having described the still current joint work
in a UK high school that has developed since 1996 the paper moves on to consider the
transformational nature of the project and ends by offering two frameworks: one suggests
a number of key questions pertinent to any evaluation of the institutional conditions for
student voice; the other provides an overarching conceptual re-appraisal of the domain.
Practical examples are given and the compelling nature of the “Students as Researchers”
approach reaffirmed.
