Changing Teacher Practice to get Kids Employed

Once again I'm bringing you a summarised version of something I've had to present to others in this school term. On this occasion I was speaking to a group of Deputy Secretaries from the NZ Ministry of Education. Afterward they asked for a copy of my presentation, so I thought I would keep the record straight by posting it on my blog.

The short story is: -If we want our lowest SES Maori and Pasifika kids employed, we need to change the way we do school. Improved practice = Kids @ Work!

Harmonising the Curriculum to bring Enlightenment

This month I had the great privilege to speak to a mixed audience of the OECD and the New Zealand Ministry of Education about Equity, Access and Inclusion. 
It was an honour to speak to people who are working on these wicked problems and genuinely trying to do something about it.
My screen record of this presentation didn't come our quite a well as I'd hoped, but I think it still conveys adequately what I was hoping to share.
I trust you find this valuable.
