Critical action research is contextualized in a low socioeconomic, multicultural urban school in Auckland, New Zealand.

The authors are a university lecturer, who is a mentor, and a school principal, who is a critical action researcher.

The research was part of a meta project which aimed to raise the achievement of Mori (indigenous) students. Research processes incorporated Freirean dialogical processes, cross cultural learning and teacher professional development.
The research outcomes for students are critically examined.
