Ka Hikitia and Tau Mai Te Reo Strategy Survey

Closed 31 Dec 2020

Opened 20 Jul 2020


As part of the Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga, thousands of Māori learners and their whānau, hapū and iwi shared what is important to them in education and what they would like to see changed.

We heard that a good education system is one that values te reo Māori me ngā tikanga, that values Māori identity, language and culture, and positively responds to diverse lived experiences of whānau Māori. A good education system means that Māori exercise agency and authority, and are free from racism, discrimination and bullying.

We have already started responding to what we heard through the wānanga in 2018 and to keep this work going we have refreshed our Māori focus strategies.

We are asking for your views on the refreshed Ka Hikitia (Māori education strategy for ALL Māori learners and their whānau) and Tau Mai Te Reo (Māori Language in Education Strategy for ALL New Zealand learners). Although these strategies are based on views that whānau, hapū, iwi, and Māori have already given us, we want to check that we heard you right.

We value your input. There are no right or wrong answers, we would like to hear what you think.

The survey is anonymous. This survey will help us check we are going in the right direction.  

You can have your say by filling out this 10 minute survey, or by contacting us via email to ka.hikitia@education.govt.nz.
