Māori students want more than 'tokenistic' haka

From Morning Report, 6:15 am on 14 March 2018

Māori students are calling for more cultural education in their schooling rather than only "tokenistic" haka performances. That's been revealed in the 'Education matters to me' report, which has been compiled from surveys with about 1,500 primary and secondary school pupils across the country. Children's Commissioner Andrew Becroft told RNZ reporter Eva Corlett that with new priorities about to be set for the education system, it was important to hear directly from children.
