Students First and Nurturing Networks: Visualising Positive Futures for New Zealand Secondary Students
Moore, Jennifer; Robinson, Sue
Why should we place students first? This article engages with this question through an examination of New Zealand's first secondary school nurture group at Linwood College in Christchurch. We combine practitioner, theorist and researcher perspectives. We have a vision of learning that locates students, families and communities within supportive and inclusive networks of nurturing that facilitate meeting students' needs and the co-construction of knowledge.
