This Review brings together a collection of research literature relating to Pacific education in New Zealand, as well as some relating to Pacific education in other locations.
In addition to education texts and journal articles from around the Pacific and New Zealand, the sources consulted for this literature review include sources from Pacific education conferences proceedings, reports by the Ministry of Education, unpublished Masters and Ph D Theses, dissertations and essays.
Analysis of success is most usefully looked at over time, considering long-term learning trajectories rather than focusing solely on initial skills and adjustments.
When examining what success looks like, different theoretical views shape what is valued, and there are also different perspectives to consider.
This Literature Review on Pasifika Education Issues was commissioned to provide valuable information about those issues for Pacific education which have been researched, and those which have not in order to address policy requirements.
