About this book

This timely book argues that the New Zealand educational reforms were the product of longstanding unresolved educational issues that came to a head during the profound economic and cultural crisis of the 1970s and early 1980s.

Reviews

"Openshaw's historical volume offers us a brilliant and well-crafted example of a dialectic of educational research as he examines both larger general theoretical issues of secondary educational reforms and the specificities of struggles fought in New Zealand social and political contexts. I love his work!" - Yoshiko Nozaki, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy, State University of New York at Buffalo

"In this globalized world, we need texts such as Reforming New Zealand Secondary Education more than ever. Those interested in a contextual curriculum and instruction and the historical connections needed for relevant teaching and learning will gain much from this book. Openshaw offers a critical case study for reforming secondary education everywhere - something we all must heed - for the future of educational progress." - Cameron White, Professor of Social Education, University of Houston
