Concerns over who will teach mātauranga Māori in new curriculum

From Morning Report, 7:45 am on 6 July 2023

Non-Māori science teachers are questioning how they'll teach mātauranga Māori in a proposed new curriculum.

It follows a leaked draft of the new science curriculum - which caused a stir because it doesn't mention physics, chemistry or biology.

It's inclusion of mātauranga Māori is being welcomed, but there are concerns about who's going to teach it.
