Kia Tangi Te Titi--Permission to Speak
Whitinui, Paul
This book explores what constitutes successful schooling for Maori students in the 21st century. Editor Paul Whitinui has drawn together academic contributions from diverse fields of matauranga (education), matauranga hinengaro (psychology), whakaako hauora (health), akoranga takakau-a-ora (sport and leisure) and others. The book aims to provide a critical, reflective and forward-thinking view of how schooling for Maori students can be improved. The writers canvas topics such as the importance of te reo, Maori pedagogies, culturally relevant assessment, education strategies to develop Maori scientists and creating a culture of care. Underpinning it all is a powerful call for recognition of Maori as culturally connected learners. This book is for researchers, policy makers, school leaders, and Maori communities looking at positive, creative and dynamic ways of improving schooling for Maori students. The foreword is by Dr Turoa Royal.
