John A. Codd
Vol 16, Number 2, p.59
This article considers the current role of NZQA as one of the major centralising forces in the New Zealand education system. Using Habermas ' critique of modernity, it argues that NZQA is the product of a technocratic rationality which has become the modus operandi of reforms to administration in the New Zealand State and economy.
