Research on student voice suggests that children’s perspectives are important in the efforts to promote equal education opportunities to culturally-diverse student population. Despite the increased attention student voice has received, children’s critiques and reflections of their socio-educational experiences are usually ignored by their schools. This aims to reflect on how student voice could support intercultural efforts in schools by investigating the ways in which immigrant and native children in primary schools perceive cultural diversity and its implications on their daily lives. This research can be very informative for the formation of future policies, practices, and teaching methodologies in culturally-diverse schools.
