...culture in New Zealand pertaining to Pacific peoples and communities. Much Pacific research in New Zealand, for example, has glossed over cross-cultural contexts, ignoring the cultural complexities not only of the multiethnic nature of Pacific communities but also the intraethnic nuances of the diverse groupings and identities of Pacific peoples in New Zealand. I knew that, until this was addressed, Pacific research in New Zealand would be ineffective and lack the ability for transformative change for Pacific peoples and communities in New Zealand. Second, I...

The creation and elevation of Vision Mātauranga to the upper echelons of research in Aotearoa New Zealand denote a significant shift in the national research psyche. Previously, Māori knowledge was excluded or, at best, overlooked, and, in other instances, was suppressed and undermined as part of a more imperialistic agenda.

Pacific research was seen as a way to address social and economic issues occurring within the Pacific community that had become part of the national discourse in Aotearoa New Zealand. These pan-Pacific research methodologies, frameworks, and guidelines...

...public (i.e. state) schools even though his ideas were popular at the time. It is interesting to note that his philosophy underpinned the child-centred pedagogy of the Plowden Report ( 1969 ) and has been embraced more recently by early years educators in the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Scandinavia, and Italy, where ideological beliefs conceive the child to be an active, competent, and social learner—one who, through social interaction and experiential education, constructs their own understanding of the world. Dewey proposed that the role of...

Experienced teachers who have trained and qualified overseas may also gain QTS via this route, although those who have qualified in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the USA may not be required to do so. Historically, teacher training for schoolteachers took place in teacher training colleges, which were renamed colleges of education following the recommendations of the 1963 Robbins Report . Many of these eventually became...

This program was co-designed by TFA and charter school leadership to provide a more “practical” preparation program that avoids the theoretical underpinnings of traditional colleges of education. In fact, there are now two distinct pathways through which to enter teaching in New York City: one for those entering traditional public schools and an entirely separate pathway for those seeking to work in the charter school sector ( Mungal, 2016 ). In New Zealand, Teach First recently severed ties with the...

...here, a recent large scale study of teacher status in New Zealand offers a simple modern approach to the definition of status. Defining Status in New Zealand. As Turner has shown, the way status is defined changes over time as societies and lifestyles change. Rather than providing a definition, Hall and Langton ( 2005 ) asked participants in their nationwide survey of 1,045 New Zealanders and 100 New Zealand businesses how they would define “status.” Having fame and recognition emerged as a new criterion of status, along with power and wealth.

The report states that national standards were not always applied effectively; for example, not all providers assessed their teacher candidates rigorously and consistently against the standards ( Craven et al., 2014 ). Teaching standards in New Zealand are well established, with the New Zealand Teachers Council, a professional body for teachers, holding the lead role in defining standards for the profession. The teaching standards also envision initial teacher requirements and teacher graduation standards. The standards include critical...

( 2010 ) recommended that teacher education programs provide explicit instruction on formative assessment through a combination of case study approaches, practical teaching experiences, and consistent reflective thinking. In New Zealand, Smith and colleagues ( 2014 ) examined preservice primary teachers’ conceptions of assessment before and after assessment education using a mixed-methods approach, including questionnaires, dialogues with teacher educators, and focus groups. Similar to the findings from ...
