The characteristics that make Meaningful Student Involvement different from simply student voice are simple:
- School-wide approaches
- High levels of student authority
- Interrelated strategies
- Sustainable structures of support
- Personal commitment
- Strong learning connections
These characteristics ensure that student voice isn’t a Trojan horse for adults. They also show that student voice should be integrated throughout the education system. This movement sends Meaningful Student Involvement toward the very top possibilities for school improvement.
