In this paper we are concerned with the notion of ‘pedagogic voice’. We recognise that within the schooling context ‘voice’ can represent many things. For instance, it can relate to organisational matters in terms of the kind of say students have in the day to day running of the school and it can also relate to the opportunities students have to challenge perceived injustices or to the way in which conflicts are mediated. These are all important considerations and tie in closely with notions of democracy and schooling. Pedagogic voice relates to the presence of students’ voice in teaching, learning and curriculum matters. A lack of voice in schools has been attributed to many marginalised students’ alienation from mainstream schooling. Drawing on interview data collected in an alternative, or second chance, school catering to many such students we demonstrate how attention to pedagogic voice can not only work to engage students in learning, but also improve civic engagement.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
