The Role of Education in Shaping a NZ Muslim Student Identity
New Zealand, as a modern, pluralist society built on liberal principles and values, has a long tradition of integrating diverse groups in order to create a cohesive society with the education system serving as the main site for integration.
Doctoral research undertaken at the University of Auckland seeks to understand the role New Zealand's state and state-integrated education system has in shaping a New Zealand Muslim identity, in a secular democratic society. The researcher seeks interested teachers to share their teaching and learning experiences catering for the needs of Muslim students in the New Zealand education system.
