Listening to the voices of struggling students as a way of finding out what works to help them through review of literature.

Abstract


Children in mainstream schools who struggle academically and disengage in regular schooling may be helped when teachers change their practice to include what the students themselves have reported makes a difference. Student voices need to be listened to, not as a token gesture, but as a way of making a positive difference in their lives at school and therefore strengthen their ability to be a successful member of society in the future.
