Kōrero Mātauranga - Let's talk about Education

We’d like a chat. About something really important to us all. Education.

Education should give every New Zealander the freedom and opportunity to be the best they can be. That’s the education system we want for the future.

But to achieve it we need your help.

Below you'll find consultations from across the education work programme. We need your input, feedback and insights. We value your opinions to feed in to all parts of the work to meet the needs of all learners in Aotearoa New Zealand.
