The school is an institution which we believe ensures children’s wellbeing, yet all the decisions in and about schools are taken by adults. Many times, adults who do not even know children’s realities are responsible for the way a school functions. This belief that adults know more than children, needs to be examined. This article explores how children can be encouraged to share their interpretations of school life through storybooks, and also advocates for the enhancement of children’s agency in children’s literature.
