Combining Youth Organizing and Youth Participatory Action Research to Strengthen Student Voice in Education Reform

by Tom Dolan, Brian D. Christens & Cynthia Lin
Community organizing efforts employ different types of research as they seek to address community issues. This chapter details the evolving use of research in a youth organizing effort in San Bernardino, CA that has addressed issues in schools, the educational system, and the broader community. We examine the youth organizers’ use of organizing research and youth participatory action research (YPAR) and the contributions of each form of research to the organizing effort.

Creative Expressions of Agency: Contemplating Youth Voice and Adult Roles in Participatory Action Research

by Vanessa Jones, Carmine Stewart, Anne Galletta & Jennifer Ayala
The chapter examines youth participation within three intergenerational collectives using participatory action research (PAR) to address educational policies youth viewed as counterproductive to their education. Outlining the complexity of youth voice, the multiple vehicles within the arts through which youth voice is expressed, and the different ways in which youth voice is received by educators and policy makers, the chapter underscores the promise of youth involvement in developing, assessing, and fundamentally altering educational policy.
