The unheard voice of children series
Children are real researchers: they elaborate and change theories with the others and individually while they interpret the world and the things. The school can become the place for these meaningful researches, for this trend towards knowledge that children carry out even autonomously.
Children talk, and they have always talked, though their words are rarely listened to and leave no trace. The words of children may at times seem strangely similar to our own, but they recall faraway and unknown worlds and meanings to which we as adults too often remain deaf and insensitive. Giving a voice to childhood thus means recognizing children’s right
to be the primary authors of their lives.
Giving a voice to children is the courageous adventure of this editorial series that urges us to open our ears and listen to this “unheard voice”.
Sergio Spaggiari, 1995
