Parents have again challenged the Ministry of Education to remove a commissioner from a Maori language school in South Taranaki.
They've filed their second petition, expressing no faith in the Government appointed executive.
He was put in charge of Te Kura O Nga Ruahine Rangi in Mangatoki three years ago, following a poor Education Review Office report.
But members of the local iwi, Nga Ruahine, object to having a Pakeha commissioner who can't speak te reo Maori.
Chair John Hooker says a Maori commissioner could work, but ultimately they want a school board made up of tribal members
He says there a number of people who are capable of doing the job - and they would instil good governance from the word go.
