School councils are a brilliant way for young people to influence and lead on school decisions. Not just about the toilets, or wall displays, but important decisions that affect the running of the school. They’re a great way for young people to ‘do democracy’.
School councils exist in over 90% of schools, but unfortunately many of them only involve the really confident young people, get nothing done, and just teach students that ‘taking part’ is about moaning. We’re worried that this gives all the wrong messages to young people about democracy.
Our school councils programme helps schools to change that, and to make their school councils READY for ACTION!
