What I need from my school is to feel safe again. Having administrators who threatened teachers and hurt students isn’t my ideal place to be. Fremont High School is the school I have been going to for my whole high school career. Students being hurt by grownups has happened two years in a row.
Last week, on Teachers Teaching Teachers, a group talked about issues for those who are new to Youth Voices. A question came up about getting administrator support for students participating in open networks like Youth Voices. Here is a link to that part of the show.
What are your experiences with this issue? What are your arguments and what has been successful in convincing your administration?
