Retrospective: A tribute to the past editors from the current editorial team




kairaranga, retrospective, meta analysis


This retrospective, as the first piece in the new online version of Kairaranga, looks back over two decades of the print version of this journal. The current editorial team pays tribute to the original editors and acknowledges their vision and achievements. Locating the journal within the changing educational landscape over the past twenty years, this piece provides a meta-analysis and reflection of the articles published from 2004 to 2021. It explores the key themes that emerged as threads across 24 Kairaranga issues published between these years.

Looking forward to Kairaranga’s future, there is a commitment to honouring the past. The original vision and focus of Kairaranga will remain: to foreground evidence-based practices that put learners at the centre. Opportunities to weave new Kairaranga threads will be explored, including expanding the voices and perspectives of contributors, widening the journal focus to equity issues across learning support and enabling online and multi-media submissions in both English and te reo Māori.

Looking back to look forward, the core kaupapa of this interprofessional journal stays constant, so that Kairaranga can continue to promote educational equity across Aotearoa.
