Budd, Julia – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2016
Equity for those experiencing disability is a complex real-world issue best studied by cross-disciplinary groups.

Meta-perspectives have been found to help overcome the issues caused by these different…

McLaughlin, Tara; Aspden, Karyn; Snyder, Patricia – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2016

Hill, Richard – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2016
In New Zealand the recipe for creating bilingual and biliterate Maori-medium graduates is not well understood because, for the most part, schools are left to their own devices to experiment with Maori and English language components. It is therefore not clear whether graduates reach high levels of bilingualism and biliteracy, and ultimately,…

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…
