Me tau pōike, tau atu, tau atu - Learning in Crises

The Māori text, “Me tau pōike, tau atu, tau atu’, drawn from a line of Sir Timoti Kāretu’s ngeri ‘Ki mai nei a Te Wharehuia’, steers us when working towards equilibrium, a state of equipoise - living in balance.  COVID-19 is a global existential crisis. Further crises in education include the impacts of climate change and systemic issues such as racism, cultural and gender related inequities and disparities between economically advantaged and other learners. These intersecting crises threaten to keep us in an unjust space of dis-equilibrium or imbalance. A key current challenge is to use what we have learnt from responding to the COVID-19 crisis to improve education for all, moving towards an equitable equilibrium. To learn and then to act is the mission of educators.
