Belonging and Identity through Equality

This is a PDF of the presentation by Associate Professor Mere Berryman at the Kāhui Whakaako Hui in September 2016. It utilises Dr Ann Milne’s “Colouring in the white spaces” scholarship in education as a lens to better understand the context in which we are working in New Zealand’s English medium schools. The presentation challenges us to think about the imperatives that underpin our work; the moral imperative (Treaty of Waitangi), the political imperative (Ka Hikitia) and the social imperative (ERO’s Evaluation Framework). Finally, it lists the ways in which this work must be undertaken.
