Students always have something to say and they should be heard. So many times I have been in a classroom where a student wants to say something to a teacher but the teacher just does not want to hear it. It is understandable that a student should not be telling a personnal story during a lesson because of the small amount of time, but they should be heard eventually. Also, if the child has something to say that does pertain to the lesson then why not have the student talk? It could be helpful. Students voices matter and should be heard. They are a valuable part of society and cannot be shut out.
