Educational policy; structure and systems
In this article Cathy Wylie, a chief researcher at the New Zealand Council for Educational Research, provides an account of New Zealand’s education system from the introduction of self-managing schools under Tomorrow’s Schools through to the present day. Dr Wylie draws on her recent book Vital Connections to critically examine the assumptions and structures that have underpinned self-managing schools. Her book describes the many ways in which schools are disconnected from the Ministry of Education and from one another.
