A Deep Dive Into Amplifying Student Voices

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this session, we will unpack some challenges students face in schools and create a framework for amplifying students' voices. Students need to occupy spaces in which they can freely be themselves. Schools are spaces that are supposed to serve all students; when students' lived experiences are not valued or treated as equally important, they either adapt to the culture or ostracize themselves due to feelings of oppression. However, society has taught us which identities are prioritized and valued. Doing so contributes to normalizing how different identities from the dominant group are devalued and othered. Participants will leave the session with the skills to advocate for student affinity groups in their schools.
