Attached is a link to a transcript of tonight’s Virginia Chat conversation on teacher voice and dissent. It is critical for school officials to give teachers an opportunity to express disagreement with decisions. Depending on type and degree, dissent can positively or negatively impact school climate. Please refer to the thoughts and opinions of school officials and teachers expressed in tonight’s chat for insights on promoting teacher voice, differentiating between types of dissent, addressing negativity in schools, and promoting constructive conflict/criticism related to decisions made.
