The Role of Administrators in Enabling Youth–Adult Partnerships in Schools

School leaders play a crucial role in enabling and sustaining student voice initiatives. This article identifies three specific ways in which administrators can spark and encourage a focus on increasing student voice in school decision making and in classroom practice, including (a) fostering youth–adult partnerships within the context of a schoolwide learning community, (b) buffering from administrative bureaucracy within schools, and (c) building bridges beyond school walls with intermediary organizations.
