I have now met with both of my supervisors and am inspired and excited and only need another day or two a week to be added to my calendar!
I am going to be exploring Kei Tua o te Pae and other documents relevant to ECE in NZ and will be identifying areas of ambiguity, contradictions and gaps. I have been enjoying reading 2 books in particular:
"Deconstructing Early Childhood education" by Gaile Cannella
and "Doing Foucault in Early Childhood Education" by Glenda MacNaughton.
Great for getting your head into a critical space!
I thoroughly recommend these books to anyone exploring ECE issues. You may not agree with some of the stances taken by the autors but you will certainly be challenged!
