School Budget: Students' opinion matters!

With the support of teachers and Save the Children volunteers, students from 25 schools of Bucharest, Suceava, Mures and Timis drafted projects on “Students’ participation to school budget decisions”. A winning project was selected from each participating school and then put into practice. According to their age and preferences, students conveyed their needs and opinions through drawings, plays, questionnaires, essays, petitions or letters to the school management, to parents and, in some cases, even to the authorities (school inspectorates, municipalities, local or county councils) and the media, asking for their recommendations to be considered when setting up the following year’s budget.

Through this brochure, Save the Children would like to invite you to find out more about the school budget and education funding as well as about how students can actively engage in the identification of school needs and priorities and in the communication of their own opinions to decision makers.
