School Parliament: Towards students‘ active participation

What & why?

Democracy is often associated with values such as participation, justice, equality, joint decision-making, teamwork, cooperation, division of powers, mutual respect, diversity and participation. It is understood that democracy cannot stand in isolation, it must rely on the presence of democratic methods in all social relations, i.e. the right to equal treatment, the right to information, participation in decision-making and the right to be respected. Thus, relations with all groups of educational participants are fundamental to this democratic process (Pol, 2006). For a student to accept democracy as a way of life, certain conditions must be met.
