NZEI Te Riu Roa welcomes the opportunity to comment on this Best Evidence Synthesis.
Drawing widely and systematically from national and international research on social sciences education, its authors have sought evidence of what works, for which students, and in what circumstances. The synthesis of findings contributes to our understanding of the relationship between pedagogy and outcomes and the importance of context. Teachers will welcome the many practical ways in which to strengthen practice – a particular feature of the BES Programme.
National President, New Zealand Educational Institute, 2008.
The Leadership BES already has significant traction in New Zealand secondary schools and is well regarded by the profession as being both aspirational and practical in content. We are proud to have been involved with it from the beginning and commend it to you as a well-researched, clear and detailed way forward for leaders at any level of the schooling system. We hope it gives principals in particular a focus for their work as well as being a useful tool to help us all find ways to improve student outcomes.
President of the New Zealand Secondary Principals’ Association, 2011.

‘You won't get any closer to a succinct and cogent set of insights on how to achieve “whole system reform” than this booklet on “System-wide improvement in education”. No one integrates inside government reality and external research and evidence like Ben Levin.’ Michael Fullan, Professor & Special Adviser on Education to the Premier of Ontario.
