Kate's question: How are children’s voices and opinions included in formal schools?

An example from the field (James):

  • A project approach called QEIP, Quality Education Implementation Plan, in Uganda encourages schools to plan longer-term.
  • All stakeholders (children, parents, community members, teachers…) produce a 5 or 10-year plan for their school.
  • Once it is approved by the district, the school receives funding (from War Child) to realise the plan.

Do you have any other examples to share?
