What constitutes successful schooling for Māori students in the 21st century?
Editor Paul Whitinui has reached across the disciplines for research insights, different voices and new models to address this critical and complex educational question. The book brings together academic contributions from the fields of mātauranga (education), mātauranga hinengaro (psychology), whakaako hauora (health), akoranga takakau-ā-ora (sport and leisure) and others.
It aims to provide a critical, reflective and forward-thinking view of how schooling for Māori students can be improved. The subject matter is diverse, exploring topics such as the importance of te reo, Māori pedagogies, culturally relevant assessment, teacher education and creating a culture of care. Underpinning it all is a powerful call for recognition of Maori as culturally connected learners.
The book is an important addition to scholarship on Māori education. It is for researchers, policy makers, school leaders, and Māori communities looking at positive, creative and dynamic ways of improving schooling for Māori students.
