Why are there so few Pasifika teachers in Principals positions in New Zealand Schools? Are Pasifika teachers actively being encouraged to aspire to leadership roles? Do those who are identified as leaders early nurtured, supported, coached and mentored to achieve that goal, or are there hegemonic factors that disadvantage them in the promotion and selection process, namely social class, negative stereotyping, discrimination or ultimately the decisions made by Boards of Trustees!
