How racism impacts on education systems in Aotearoa

From Afternoons, 1:15 pm on 25 October 2022

An education symposium hosted by iwi in Whakatū Nelson last week aimed to inspire leaders to look at education with a Māori lens.

The event, called Kia wetewetea, ko Māui ahau! - which translates to 'loosen me, for I am Māui' - was held at the Trafalgar Centre in Nelson on Friday.

Dr Mel Riwai-Couch speaks to Jesse about the changes they would like to see in developing the New Zealand curriculum.
