*This is a pre-release of an article featured in the forthcoming Spring 2017 issue of the International Journal of Student Voice.
- This article brings together high school students, teachers, and researchers to think about the issue of power in student voice work.
- Each author uses a metaphor or a theory to explain how they think about power in schools and in student voice work.
- The authors, at times, have different ideas about power relations in student voice work.
- We argue that the way we think about power has effects on what we see, feel and do in student voice work.
