Prisoners who will have to remove bone or greenstone necklaces could complain to the Human Rights Commission. The National Maori Tertiary Students Association, Te Mana Akonga, says other Maori courses at the Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki will be under scrutiny; but the chief executive of the Tertiary Education Commission is refuting concerns about the institute's failures having an effect on Maori tertiary training courses throughout Aotearoa. A kuia recognised as a leader in language revitalisation is hopeful the responsibility of Te Reo will break away from the Ministry of Education, and come under its own department. The Maori Development Minister, Te Ururoa Flavell, aims to deliver a Maori economic development plan by next year's Waitangi Day commemorations.
