Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga is a series of conversations we’re holding to help build the world’s best education system for our children and young people.This is the second in an Education Gazette series of excerpts from the Ministry of Education’s Voices reports. In this issue we profile the Voices of Māori report.

During 2018, more than 43,000 New Zealanders, including educators, parents, children and young people, Māori, Pacific communities, people with disabilities and those needing learning support, told us, via online surveys, what they wanted in their future education system.

What we heard is that New Zealanders want all our young people to be successful, confident, life-long learners, and to have the skills to fully participate in their families, their whānau and their communities. They also want all learners to make a positive contribution to society and the economy.

New Zealanders also told us that the cultural identity and wellbeing of every learner should be central to their educational progress and success. And that parents, whānau and communities want to be more active participants in the education of our children and young people.

The listening we have done so far has already brought changes to learning support.(external link)
