After the schooling reviews, what next??

“It ain’t what you do, it’s the way you do it.” Well, it’s both. 

Are our school students learning what they need to know and be able to do? Are they being taught in ways that motivate them to learn and do the hard yards when things are challenging?  What support do teachers and school leaders need so that we can answer yes to these questions? To me, these were the underlying questions behind the government’s set of educational reviews that were completed last year: The Tomorrow’s Schools Independent Taskforce; the Curriculum, Progress and Achievement Group; and the NCEA review.

Our education system responded to COVID-19. How will it respond to climate change?

Our education system responded to COVID-19. How will it respond to climate change?

It remains to be seen how the COVID-19 response will change the education system. It is timely to consider how education might respond to another major threat to our collective wellbeing— climate change.  Rachel Bolstad, Senior Researcher introduces our latest findings on climate change and sustainability in schools. 

We’ve experienced significant disruptions to schools, businesses, and everyday life as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  We’ve seen people and systems adapt quickly to a highly unusual situation. Schools, whānau, and education sector organisations across Aotearoa have mobilised resources, thought creatively, worked collaboratively, and responded compassionately to make things work.
