Abstract

This presentation has at its core, a captured collection of young people's interpretations and experiences of schooling to reclaim a public discourse and space within education. My intention is to reframe and reconstruct the labels and misperceptions concerning their participation.

In contrast, The WA Behaviour Management Policy (1998, 2001, and 2008) is analysed, appearing as a 'messy knot' of contradictions. In the interrogation of this policy, I use Freire's (2004) 'pedagodgy of indignation' and Noddings (1984) 'caring' to reveal a multi-layered and complex process (McInerney, 2007, page 7) when policy meets practice within the secondary school.
