This module begins by considering how in many countries, and specifically in New Zealand, education has perpetuated the marginalisation of particular groups of students.

It contends that if these students are to take their rightful place as successful and valuable contributors to society then education, in its current form, must be reimagined and reformed.

It considers a number of leadership models that might reimagine and lead such a reform, then focuses on the conditions necessary to incorporate an educational reform project so that it is sustainable and can be spread to include all members of the school.

This means also being able to include the specific funds of cultural knowledge to be found in these same communities. Finally we propose a Communities of Practice model to understand how such a reform can be implemented and understood in practice.
