Twelve Thousand Hours: Education and Poverty in Aotearoa New Zealand

Author(s): Ed. Vicki Carpenter & Sue Osborne

Education | NZ Society | Politics | Economics

There is well-documented concern regarding the links between poverty and education; statistics demonstrate, over many decades, that the economically poorer the New Zealand child's family, the more likely it is the child will not reach her/his potential. The blame for such inequitable outcomes is variously placed on children's families and communities, on teachers and schools, and on wider structural and system injustices. The contributors to this book are key NZ writers and thinkers in the field of education and poverty. Reasons for our contemporary schooling's inequitable outcomes are examined and critiqued.
