Maori & Pasifika NCEA achievement
The government has set a target to lift NCEA pass rates across the board. By next year, it aims to have 85% of all students with NCEA level 2, and 50% to have gained University Entrance. It is close to achieving both those targets, but how are Pasifika and Maori students faring within that?
