This article explores some of the core values which underpin student voice work. We are in the very early stages of trying to understand the values that surround student voice and hope to develop these understandings by drawing on the work of various educational theorists. Throughout the article we examine some of the complexities that arise in theorizing student voice, and allude to the practical implications of the values in the context of student voice work in schools and the implications to school improvement.
