    Education leaders gathered here, greetings to you all. Many are my warm greetings to you today.
    I acknowledge also the treasures of the tāngatawhenua of New Zealand.
    We have a lot of work to do, so let us help each other. From your food basket and my food basket, the people will be kept well.
    Greetings, greetings, may we all enjoy good health.
  • 4. Introduction
    This is a facilitated session based on my work as science leader for the Education Employment Linkages research programme.
    The focus of the session is: What does it mean to exercise education leadership (in the context of a specific issue)?
  • 5. Where in education are we leading?
    Early childhood education (including kōhanga reo)
    Primary/intermediate (including kurakaupapa)
    Secondary
    Tertiary (including wānanga)
    Business/policy
  • 6. Introducing the Issue
    In July the New Zealand Institute published a well-received discussion paper on “two proposals to reduce youth disadvantage”.
  • 7. ‘More ladders, fewer snakes’ proposes that accelerated roll-out of e-learning to low decile schools and improving the school-to-work transition will materially reduce youth unemployment and resulting social issues.
  • 8. One Symptom of the Issue
  • 9. Another Distressing Symptom
  • 10. Summary by the NZ Institute
  • 11. An Insider’s Perspective
    Ernie Buutveld is Immediate Past President of the New Zealand Principals’ Federation.
    He is Principal of Havelock School in the Marlborough Sounds.
    While he was President of NZPF, he made the following observation about students in New Zealand primary schools.
  • 12. An Insider’s Perspective
    “There is a small number of children in our schools who are struggling – for all sorts of reasons. The number varies. The Minister of Education believes the number is one in five. This is still just less than the OECD average of 21%, but significantly higher than the numbers cited by educators and leading academics, who agree the reality in our primary schools is more like 15-16%.”
    - Ernie Buutveld (2010).

    - Ernie Buutveld (2010).
  • 14. There are about 400,000 primary school students in New Zealand, so that the figure of 15% suggests there are 60,000 young people struggling in our primary schools.
  • 15. The Question
    What does it mean to exercise educationleadership in the context of 60,000 young people struggling at primary school?
    I am NOT asking you for solutions.
    What does it take to be an educationleader in this context?
  • 16. The Question
    What does it mean to exercise educationleadership in the context of 60,000 young people struggling at primary school?
    Brainstorm ideas for 6 minutes.
    Write/Draw/Prepare something creative in 6 minutes.

  • 25. Conclusion
    I want to finish this session with an exercise that in a sense we could do only in Aotearoa New Zealand.
    In preparing this exercise I am indebted to the late Michael King who argued that te reo Māori is an important part of Being Pākehā.
  • 26. Pronouns with Two Groups!!
  • 27. Mātou and Rātou
  • 28. Tātou
  • 29. Conclusion
    No word in English conveys the power of tātou in te reo Māori.
    It is an example of why I agree with Michael King that te reo Māori is an important part of Being Pākehā.
    “Creating tātou from mātou and rātou” is common in Māori practice.
  • 30. Education Leadership
    I think education leadership is about creating TĀTOU from MĀTOU and RĀTOU.
