Taking the Lead - in which direction, whose direction, and how?

Details

Taking the lead involves setting a direction that variously connects, reconnects, and disconnects policies and practices of the past and the present, while looking to the future. The past is recalled by a diminishing few. The present is all too familiar. The future is uncertain. Taking the lead involves giving certainty to direction, but this begs questions of which direction, whose direction, and how that direction is secured. Lester Flockton touches on some of the key issues and challenges that confront those would take the lead.

Flockton played a prominent part in the development and introduction of the New Zealand Curriculum and was one of the designers of the National Education Monitoring Project. He established the Project's Māori Immersion Education Advisory Committee and the Māori Reference Group to guide assessment for Māori students.
