Young people are increasingly vocal in their societies, notably through social media and online communities. Even in traditional, pre-digital communities, student voices are rising, yet in most schools learners still have very little input into their learning or how their schools are governed. Does the potential of social media to instigate change heighten the responsibility to teach citizenship skills? If we are to encourage learners to act as responsible citizens, should we also treat them as such in their school communities?
