We request that the House of Representatives support all children in Aotearoa New Zealand learning te reo Māori in their school

He tono tā mātou, me kaha tautoko e te Whare Pāremata ko te reo Māori me ōna tini tikanga hei kaupapa matua i ngā kura katoa o Aotearoa nei

The Green Party supports universal te reo Māori in all public schools.  We have a responsibility to ensure that our indigenous language thrives in Aotearoa, and introducing all children to it at school is the best way to make that happen.  Learning a second language has proven benefits for children, as does Māori students being immersed in their own culture. Learning a language is also a fantastic way to respect, value and connect with a culture that isn’t your own.
