Equal Power in Adversity: An Educational Myth for Post-Renwick Policy-Making in New Zealand Education.
MacPherson, R. J. S.
This paper proposes a new myth for New Zealand education policy development: "equal power in adversity." Unlike the preliberalism Darwinian myth, "survival of the fittest," and its replacement, "equal opportunities," the new myth would incorporate and reconstrue the socially critical postulates of the currently hegemonic "equal outcomes" myth using a pragmatic, holistic, and econo-political imagination.
