Shifting leadership out of the backyard: Expanding opportunities for women leading in higher education in the Solomon Islands

In the Solomon Islands, the paucity of women represented in educational leadership positions is an issue of social justice. This is an area of concern as, although women experience opportunities to practise leadership in a range of community contexts, their access to leadership in the field of education is restricted by a number of social and cultural discourses that marginalize women leaders. This qualitative research investigated the leadership experiences of ten women leaders located in one

Here the social justice tension is not so much about how to help others but how to correlate widely accepted professional standards and practices with competing personal cultural sensitivities and insights.

Conceptions of Giftedness in a Global, Modern World: Where are We at in Aotearoa New Zealand, 2012?

Conceptions of giftedness have undergone several paradigm shifts in recent decades. Giftedness in the New Zealand context has been influenced by these shifts and consequently there are implications for educators in New Zealand. Conceptual understandings influence the pedagogical decisions made about gifted education as a whole and it is thus important for educators to be confident in their understanding of the conceptions that guide programmes and policy in their own school or centre.

Evidence on the effects of the main types of programs – case management, work experience programs and formal education and training – is reviewed, and the main findings are distilled into a set of lessons for policy makers. The review concludes that active labour market programs cannot by themselves have a major impact on the rate of unemployment, but some spending on these programs is justified by outcomes such as increasing the pool of unemployed who are
