Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga is a series of education conversations to help build the world’s best education system for our children and young people.

We want all New Zealanders to participate in the kōrero. And especially those whose voices have not been traditionally heard in discussions about the future of education, such as children and young people, Māori, Pacific peoples, parents, and people with learning support needs. 

Most of the kōrero is taking place around the significant changes being proposed to almost our entire New Zealand education system, as part of the Education Work Programme (EWP). In addition, feedback from the kōrero is being used to design a vision that will guide the future of education in Aotearoa for the next 30 years.

Over 43,000 people have participated in Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga so far.

We will publish excerpts from the different ‘Voices’ reports in upcoming issues of Education Gazette.

The voices of young people

We asked young New Zealanders to tell us, via an online survey, what was important to them in building a more robust education system.

Thinking about the future

Almost 2,000 young people aged between 5 and 18 got back to us. Here’s a selection of what they said:
