Navigating between Maori Particularism and Economic Universalism in Adult Literacy Provision in Aotearoa New Zealand: The Case of a Wananga
Zepke, Nick
Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, v32 n3 p431-442 2011
This paper examines tensions between adult literacy policy in Aotearoa New Zealand and the philosophies and mission of one post-school institution, a Wananga, an institution focused on the education of Maori, Aotearoa New Zealand's indigenous people. It uses policy documents, interview data and complexity thinking to explore the tensions created by a Wananga's task to navigate between Maori particularism and economic universalism.
