In Aotearoa New Zealand, the prevalence of these conceptualisations is linked to issues of power and result in a narrow and inaccurate framing of Maori tamariki (children). In this article Tiritiria, a Maori philosophical view of knowledge,…

In order to both raise the educational achievement of all students, and to…
