Russell, Elizabeth – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2022
Compulsory teaching of Aotearoa New Zealand histories has potential to change how this country's young people think and feel about themselves. However, achieving the new curriculum's vision of a more thoughtful and responsible citizenry is unlikely to be straightforward. For Pakeha secondary school students, descendants of European settlers, the…

Hetaraka, Maia – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2022
The history of educational policy-making in Aotearoa New Zealand is also a history in myth-making. Myths about Maori in education are deeply embedded in educational and social thought, because they have their origins in the first political interactions between Maori and Pakeha. These interactions were motivated by contradicting forces--Maori…

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. Increasingly, another orientation, based on different premises, which might be called 'indigenisation', is becoming evident. We argue that indigenisation offers more hopeful possibilities for New Zealand universities as…

MacDonald, Liana; Smith, Avery; Funaki, Hine – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
The Ministry of Education, Teaching Council and other groups aligned with the teaching profession are increasingly acknowledging the impact of racism, yet there is a dearth of research that moves beyond unconscious bias to examine how race is socially constructed in schools. In this paper, we present four autoethnographic accounts from Tracey to…

Major, Jae – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2018
Aotearoa New Zealand is a diverse multicultural nation, with a vibrant indigenous culture and language. However, levels of bilingualism are relatively low, with less than 20% of the population using more than one language. English is the dominant language, and monolingualism in English the taken for granted norm. In the New Zealand Curriculum…

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…
