Student Voice Matters: Students Mobilize and Successfully Add Their Voice to Teacher Evaluations

The students from the Boston Student Advisory Council (BSAC) mobilized parents, students and teachers to make it possible for high school students to now have a say in state teacher evaluations.  One student said, “BSAC’s campaign to include student voice within the new teacher evaluation system gives administrators a more well rounded 360 view of a teacher.”  Ultimately, it’s important for us as teachers to hear the voices of those we teach because after all, they are the ones receiving the education.

Check out the new Student Voice Matters website and this video of BSAC’s journey and hear the voices of students, teachers and administrators:
