Ontario’s Student Voice Initiative (FORUM 1)
Author: JEAN COURTNEY
This article describes in some detail aspects of the Student Voice initiative funded and championed by Ontario’s Ministry of Education since 2008. The project enables thousands of students to make their voices heard in meaningful ways and to participate in student-led research. Some students from grades 7 to 12 become members of the Student Advisory Council to the Minister for Education, and meet with the Minister twice a year to help inform education policy and spark new thinking.
