Imagine if: Student perspectives on how to make school better

The main research question for this research project is: How would students redesign their school experience to be more interesting and meaningful? To answer this question, the researcher may interview several students from a particular school, asking them what they would change about school to make it a better experience. The researcher would find similarities between all the interviews and use those to develop common themes.
