The Way Forward

We want to forge a positive way forward for all tamariki Māori.
 
Previously a lot of our work has focussed on identifying problems and then providing possible solutions which have invariably been ignored by agencies and governments.

It’s time to turn that around.  We need to celebrate and promote all the great things which are happening for tamariki Māori in schools, kura, kōhanga reo, and early childhood centres throughout Aotearoa.

Māori educators provide the best education for tamariki Māori from a Māori perspective but the way forward for ourselves, for te iwi Māori and Aotearoa needs to involve all New Zealanders in the education of tamariki Māori not just Māori.

Education Minister Hekia Parata says 11 communities of schools totalling 38,000 students at both primary and secondary levels have been approved for the scheme, and other…
