Hoskins, Te Kawehau; Jones, Alison – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2022
'Indigenous inclusion' has been the most common approach to Maori engagement in university education in Aotearoa-New Zealand.

We argue that indigenisation offers more hopeful possibilities for New Zealand universities as…

Transforming practices in initial teacher education and school and early childhood education contexts to support the success of Pasifika students and children can be challenging.

Severinsen, Christina; Mika, Jason; Hutson, Rochelle – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2020
This is a reflective account of an inquiry learning process that took place as a small country school corrected its name from Tiritea to Turitea.

Eley, Elizabeth; Berryman, Mere – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
The vision of New Zealand's Ministry of Education is to "lift aspiration, raise educational achievement for every New Zealander". However, our national statistics show us that this goal remains elusive for many students, particularly those who identify as Maori. In order to both raise the educational achievement of all students, and to…

Reynolds, Martyn – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Education in an inter-cultural space is a feature of Aotearoa New Zealand: the education system is of European origin as are many in the teaching profession, while the student population is diverse.

Hunter, Jodie; Hunter, Roberta; Bills, Trevor; Cheung, Ingrid; Hannant, Barbara; Kritesh, Kevin; Lachaiya, Rakesh – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2016
Many Pasifika students start their schooling fluent in their own language and with a rich background of knowledge and experiences. However, very quickly they join high numbers of Pasifika students failing within the education system. The reasons are diverse but many link directly to the structural inequities they encounter which cause a disconnect…

Macfarlane, Angus Hikairo – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2015
The growing recognition of Maori education approaches and ways of knowing can be seen both as a response to the erosion and loss of traditional knowledge philosophies through the processes of colonialism and internationalism, and as a means of reclaiming and revaluing Maori language, identity and culture. Improving the educational success of Maori…
