Young people are in the best position to give an authentic voice to their concerns and experiences regarding schooling through their involvement in research and action. Image based research can highlight students’ views about their social and cultural environment and contribute to change and progress towards more democratic secondary schools. This paper presents an overview of recent research on student engagement and disengagement in secondary schools and suggested methodology for engaging young people as researchers in image based research in schools.
