Student behavior and attitudes are critical to a school's climate and academic success, but often students aren't involved in school improvement planning. Emerging research shows that getting students to buy in to their school can improve trust between students and staff, reduce behavior problems, and increase academic engagement. Yet it can seem a daunting task for educators, particularly with older students.

As part of Education Week's 2013 Quality Counts annual report, researchers and administrators talk about how to bring students into the school-climate conversation, from identifying problems to changing behavior.
