Kōkirihia

We're available to work alongside you to support ending streaming in your setting.

The next step in destreaming

Kōkirihia* – the plan for removing streaming from our schools – was released on 20 March, 2023. The design and development has been led by Tokona te Raki and other key education agencies, including Tatai Aho Rau. We’re excited to see that this huge step forward to create a much needed shift for all learners is now available for educators to read and respond to.

“It is evidenced in the research which shows that Māori and Pacific students are more likely to be incorrectly placed in bottom groups and classes, and that it damages self-esteem and confidence and limits career pathways. It has been a privilege to be part of this ground-breaking work that will impact positively on our tamariki” says Dr Hana O’Regan.

Did you catch the webinar?

On 28 March we held a free webinar – Tūhuratia te Iho Pūmanawa | Addressing bias and stereotyping in teaching practice.

Led by champions of destreaming, Professor Christine Rubie-Davies and Dr Hana O’Regan, this webinar is your gateway to:

  • uncovering the potential of every ākonga without bias or prejudice
  • identifying behaviours of teachers with high expectations
  • effective practices for mixed-ability teaching.

Who should watch?

Primary and secondary educators who want to understand more about what it takes to end streaming in their settings.

How can we help learners thrive?

Thriving as a learner depends on having equitable access to opportunities. Our webinar, broadcast in March, ‘Addressing bias and stereotyping in teaching practice – Tūhuratia te Iho Pūmanawa’ is a starting point for those who want to understand what’s required to destream.

Professor Christine Rubie-Davies and Dr Hana O’Regan will guide participants through a kōrero on:

  • uncovering the potential of every ākonga without bias or prejudice
  • identifying behaviours of teachers with high expectations
  • practices for effective mixed-ability teaching.
