High expectation teaching and the creation of equitable outcomes for all students: implications for Northland schools
In areas of New Zealand, such as Northland, that have high proportions of Māori students and those from low socioeconomic backgrounds, educators have struggled to ensure equitable outcomes for all students. Yet, this need not be so. There is clear evidence that when teachers have high expectations for all students and institute high expectation practices into their classrooms, all students can succeed at the highest levels. New Zealand has the highest disparity of any OECD country between our highest and lowest achievers. This is because of the way that classrooms and teaching are structured. A move to schools founded on high expectation principles facilitates achievement at the highest levels for all students. In order for success for all to become a reality, structural changes need to be made to the ways in which teaching is delivered in classrooms. This lecture will present research evidence for the endorsement of high expectation practices and will provide clear practical guidance for the implementation of high expectation principles into every classroom.
