Inequality in Our Education System

Aug. 17, 2021, 10:40 a.m.

The Ministry of Education has launched Te Hurihanganui, a kaupapa that will support communities to work together to address racism and inequity so that they can accelerate the achievement and wellbeing of ākonga Māori and their whānau. Te Hurihanganui has $42m funding from the 2018 Wellbeing Budget, to support ākonga Māori by testing ways of addressing cultural bias and racism in education. The feedback from community groups of Te Hiku that were present at the hui expressed their interest to be the sixth community in Aotearoa to pilot the kaupapa. The three partner organisations that makeup Te Hurihanganui are the Ministry of Education, Poutama Pounamu and Te Wānanga o Awanuiārangi who will act as evaluators.
