The Green Party has reiterated its commitment to universal te reo Māori in schools, following National’s education announcement yesterday.
“It’s good that National is open to Kiwi kids learning a second language and te reo Māori should be at the front of the queue. We want a more ambitious plan for te reo Māori in schools, and the Green Party will make that happen in government,” said Māori development spokesperson Marama Davidson.
“Te reo Māori is one of the official languages of Aotearoa. It is a taonga that should be treasured, valued and nourished.
