This book honours the work of John Codd and Roy Nash, who made important contributions to educational scholarship and to education policy and practice in this country and internationally. Launching the book at an event at Massey University in July, vice chancellor Steve Maharey made the comment that the best way to honour their work now was for the book to be widely read.

John Codd was best known for his robust analysis and critique of education policies based on neo-liberal thinking. Roy Nash’s central concern was inequality and educational achievement. The contributors to this memorial volume discuss the legacy of these two important educationalists, while at the same time critiquing and engaging with their work in new ways.

This book examines decolonisation and Māori education in Aotearoa New Zealand in ways that seeks to challenge, unsettle and provoke for change.

Editors Jessica Hutchings and Jenny Lee-Morgan have drawn together leading Māori writers and intellectuals on topics that are at the heart of a decolonising  education agenda, from  tribal education initiatives to media issues, food sovereignty, wellbeing, Christianity, tikanga and more. A key premise is that colonisation excludes holistic and Māori experiences and ways of knowing, and continues to assert a deep influence on knowledge systems and ways of living and being, and that efforts to combat its impact must be broad and comprehensive.

The vision was to grow indigenous research and researchers and the achievement is evident in this collection.
