Hughson, Taylor Alexander – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2022
This article seeks to explain how Aotearoa New Zealand moved from a consensus that the New Zealand Curriculum (NZC) should grant a high degree of autonomy to teachers, to an emerging view that it ought to be more prescriptive about content.

Hetaraka, Maia – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2022

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…
