Quality Teachers for Indigenous Students: An Imperative for the Twenty-First Century
Thaman, Konai Helu
International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, v12 n1 p98-118 2013
This paper argues that all learners need teachers who are not only professionally qualified but also culturally competent. This is particularly so with teachers of indigenous students, who face the conflicting expectations of schools and those of their home cultures. References to Pacific students will be used to illustrate some of the conflicts as well as attempts to address teaching and learning issues in Pacific Island Countries (PICs).
