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…

Gamble Blakey, Althea; Treharne, Gareth J. – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019

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'. For the education sector, this was signalled immediately with the announcement of an extensive programme of review and reform initiated in their first 100┬ádays of power.

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…

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.

In 1996 the New Zealand government announced the aim of achieving a "world class inclusive education system" in its new policy, Special Education 2000 (SE2000).

Smardon, Dianne; Charteris, Jennifer – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2017
The political schooling emphasis on fixed fiscal input and improved student outcomes constitutes a significant challenge for practitioners who are held accountable for the quality of education provision. Professional learning and development (PLD) is a key policy lever for shifting practice in schools and driving philosophical change. In recent…

This paper theorises a curriculum model containing four features. We use these features as criteria to analyse and evaluate two distinctive curriculum design types: '21st Century Learning' and 'Powerful Knowledge'. The four features are: (i) the underpinning theory of knowledge in each curriculum design type; (ii) the knowledge structures used to…

McLaughlin, Tara; Aspden, Karyn; Snyder, Patricia – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2016
Recent policy initiatives in New Zealand have prioritised increasing participation in early childhood education (ECE) settings; yet cumulative reports have outlined concerns for the quality of services available. In this paper, we argue that a focus on participation without concurrent attention to the quality of early learning experiences puts…

Lourie, Megan – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2016
