Earl Rinehart, Kerry; Alcorn, Noeline – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Literature about education in New Zealand and internationally over the past 30 years has increasingly focused on the need for effective school leadership.

Tupou, Jessica; Loveridge, Judith – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Computer Science (CS) education is being increasingly included in primary school curricula across New Zealand. As a group, Pasifika students are less likely to engage with CS at tertiary level and in the workforce, so understanding more about their engagement with school level CS seems important. A multiple case-study design was used to explore…

Barker, Michael; Wood, Bronwyn E. – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
From the outset, the Labour-led Coalition Government of 2017 was intent on 'transformation'.

Yet, what is at the heart of the proposed changes and what were they trying to…

Warren, Alison – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Caring occupies a contested space in early childhood teaching. Caring is valued as crucial to children's physical and emotional wellbeing but, at the same time, it is undervalued as separate from education and more difficult to measure. This article argues for reconceptualising care as complex, dynamic, problematic, political, and assembled in…

Bernay, Ross – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
This article considers the experience of walking the 850-km Camino del Norte to Santiago de Compostela in Spain as a metaphor for an inner camino: an inner way of developing resilience.

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…

Benade, Leon – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
The idea that the New Zealand education system will cater to all students, regardless of ability, and support them in developing their full potential to the best of their abilities, is enshrined in the famous 1939 Beeby/Fraser statement. Equality of access policy discourse has shifted to emphasise equitable outcomes, focussed increasingly on…

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. Within that diversity are Pasifika students, those with links to Pacific Island nations resident in Aotearoa New Zealand. This article offers insights…
