Te Reo-Speaking Parents Likely to Enrol Kids in Māori Ed

Te reo-speaking parents are more likely to enrol children in kaupapa Māori education

Almost half of all Māori parents who speak te reo at home are likely to enrol their child in kaupapa Māori education, Stats NZ said today.

"This is positive news and shows the importance of te reo and culture in influencing a parent’s decision on educational pathways," Stats NZ Kaihautu Rhonda Paku says.

The new report’s findings support the view that parents’ cultural characteristics – using te reo, and being connected to and valuing Māori culture – are important in their choice of schooling for their children.

Parents more likely to enrol children in kaupapa Māori education uses data from Te Kupenga 2013 to look at the characteristics of Māori parents who sent their children to kaupapa Māori education.

"We hope the release of this report will encourage researchers to delve deeper into its findings, and the Te Kupenga dataset," Ms Paku says.

Te Kupenga 2013 was Stats NZ’s first survey of Māori well-being. The survey will run again in 2018, with collection starting mid-year.

Ka nui ake te tūpono ka whakauru ngā mātua e kōrero ana i te reo Māori i ā rātou tamariki ki te mātauranga kaupapa Māori – hunga pāpāho

Ko te tikanga ka whakauru tata ki te haurua o ngā mātua Māori katoa e kōrero ana i te reo i te kāinga i tā rātou tamaiti ki te mātauranga kaupapa Māori, e ai ki a Tatauranga Aotearoa i te rā nei.

"He mea nui tēnei, ā, ka whakaatu i te hira o te reo me te ahurea Māori mō te kawekawe i te whakatau a te matua mō ngā ara mātauranga kia whāia," te kī a te kaihautū o Tatauranga Aotearoa, a Rhonda Paku.

E hāpai ana ngā kitenga o te pūrongo hou i te hira o ngā āhuatanga ahurea o ngā mātua – arā, te kōrero i te reo Māori, me te tūhono ki te ahurea Māori, me te uara i taua ahurea – ki tā rātou whakatau me tuku ā rātou tamariki ki hea kuraina ai.

Ka nui te tūpono ka whakauru ngā mātua i ā rātou tamariki ki te mātauranga kaupapa Māori i ngā raraunga mai i Te Kupenga 2013 ki te tūhurahura i ngā āhuatanga o ngā mātua Māori e tuku ana i ā rātou tamariki ki te mātauranga kaupapa Māori.

"Ko te tūmanako nei, mā te tukunga o tēnei pūrongo e whakatenatena te hunga kairangahau ki te āta ruku ki roto i ōna kitenga, me te huinga raraunga o Te Kupenga," hei tā Paku.

Ko Te Kupenga 2013 te rangahau tuatahi nā Tatauranga Aotearoa mō te oranga o te Māori. Ka whakahaeretia anō te rangahau ā te 2018, ka tīmata te kohikohi raraunga i waengapū o taua tau.
