The government’s education conversation Kōrero Mātauranga is a watershed moment in the history of education for all Māori, Associate Education Minister Kelvin Davis says.

"Māori have a huge opportunity to help build a world class education system that works for all our tamariki. Over 5000 New Zealanders have joined the education conversation so far, by filling out our online survey. Of these, 13 percent have identified as Māori.

"That’s a great start but I want more Māori to share their thoughts through the Kōrero Mātauranga | Education Conversation. Together, we need to ensure we create an education system that lifts Māori achievement and better engages our tamariki and rangatahi.

"Now is our chance to shine a light on the innovation and responsive things we have within communities, whānau, businesses and the wider system and get improvements happening for all our children, right now."

The online survey, at conversation.education.govt.nz, asks four questions about the future of our education system:

What does a successful student of the future look like to you?

What will they need to know and be able to do?

What things need to be in place to make sure every learner is successful?

If you were the boss of education in New Zealand, what would you do first?

"I know that Kōrero Mātauranga will speak very strongly to Māori," Mr Davis says.

"The Government wants our public education system to be inclusive and work for all. I encourage all tamariki, rangatahi, whānau, iwi and urban Māori organisations to take part in the online survey to ensure the voices of Māori are heard."

The survey responses, along with outputs from the upcoming Education Summit, will help inform the Government’s Education Portfolio Work Programme.

He wā whakahirahira te Kōrero Mātauranga mō Ngāi Māori

He wā whakahirahira te Kōrero Mātauranga a te Kāwanatanga i ngā mahi mātauranga mō Ngāi Māori, tuku iho, tuku iho, hei tā te Minita Tautoko mō ngā Take Mātauranga, ko Kelvin Davis.

"Kei te tino whai angitu a Ngāi Māori ki te āwhina i ngā mahi hei hanga i tētahi pūnaha mātauranga tino pai rawa atu, puta noa i te ao, e whai hua ai ā tātau tamariki katoa. Koni atu i te 5000 ngā tāngata kua whai wāhi mai ki te Kōrero Mātauranga i nā tata nei, arā kua whakakī i te rangahau tuihono. Ko te 13 ōrau o rātau i kī ai he Māori rātau."

"He tīmatanga tino pai tērā engari kei te hiahia au kia tokomaha ake a Ngāi Māori e tuku mai ana i ō rātau whakaaro ki te Kōrero Mātauranga nei. Mā te mahi tahi, me hangā e tātau he pūnaha mātauranga e hīkina ai ngā whiwhinga a Ngāi Māori, e honoa ai ngā tamariki me ngā rangatahi ki te ako.

"Ko te wā tēnei hei whakaaho i te mārama ki ngā auahatanga me ngā mahi whai tikanga e mahia ana i ō tātau hapori, i ō tātau whānau, i ngā pakihi me te pūnaha whānui, māna ka whai hua ā tātau tamariki katoa i aia tonu nei."

E whā ngā pātai i te rangahau tuihono, kei conversation.education.govt.nz, e pātai ana mō ngā āhuatanga o anamata i te pūnaha mātauranga:

He pēhea rā te āhua o te ākonga angitu mō ngā tau kei te tū mai?

He aha ngā mea me mātua mōhio, me taea hoki e rātau?

He aha ngā āhuatanga me mātua whakarite kia angitu ai ia ākonga?

Mēnā ko koe te rangatira o te mātauranga ki Aotearoa nei, ka aha koe hei mahi tuatahi?

"Mōhio tonu au, ka tino whai tikanga a Kōrero Mātauranga ki a Ngāi Māori," hei tā Mr Davis.

"Kei te hiahia te Kāwanatanga kia whai wāhi mai ngā tāngata katoa ki tā tātau pūnaha mātauranga tūmatawhānui, ā, kia whai hua hoki rātau. Tēnei ka akiaki au i ngā tamariki katoa, ngā rangatahi, ngā whānau, ngā iwi me ngā whakahaere Māori noho tāone kia whai wāhi mai ki te rangahau tuihono kia rangona ai ngā reo o Ngāi Māori."

Ka whakamahia tēnei Kāwanatanga i ngā akoranga o te Kōrero Mātauranga me ngā hui taumata ki te whakawhanake i tētahi pūnaha mātauranga mō ngā tauira katoa o Aotearoa.
