Why do we need School Councils?
For many years, all the decisions about children were made by adults. This was thought to be best because adults are older and have experience, training and qualifications.
But adults didn’t always make the right decisions, sometimes because they hadn’t talked with the children about the issue.
Most of the countries of the world got together and agreed that children must be given rights. Plus, sometimes their ideas are actually better than adults!
So the government decided that adults must listen to children before making a decision about them.
