Edutopia. How do children learn to care enough about others that they reap the personal rewards associated with giving?
When young people develop empathy, they not only thrive in school and life, but they also impact their communities in positive, often extraordinary ways. Individual and societal success depends on raising and educating children who care about others.

Positive student engagement is not an easy term to define, yet we know it when we see it.

#noivogliamocontare è il titolo del blog realizzato dall’Unione degli Studenti con lo scopo di mettere in rete i rappresentanti d’istituto e di consulta di tutta Italia e per fare da supporto ai rappresentanti spesso “in crisi” perchè sanno cosa fare ma non sanno come farlo, o perchè i presidi e i docenti non gli permettono di mettere in pratica l’alternativa.
#noivogliamocontare nasce dalla volontà di provare a ridare un senso alla rappresentanza studentesca, in un momento storico in cui le fondamenta della stessa vengono minate con progetti come quello del PdL Aprea, con il preciso intento di portare la partecipazione studentesca ai minimi storici. #noivogliamocontare vuole essere una rete di rappresentanti che credono realmente nella missione politica della rappresentanza, che hanno voglia di cambiare le cose partendo dalle scuole, che vogliono essere la forza del cambiamento ogni giorno nelle classi, nei comitati studenteschi e nei consigli d’istituto.
