Beehive official websiteEducation Minister Hekia Parata has welcomed a report by the Office of the Auditor-General (OAG) into relationships between schools and Māori whānau.

The Education for Māori: Relationships between schools and Māori whānau report released today says that good relationships between whānau and schools can have an important influence on Māori student achievement.

“Parents and whānau have a critical role to play in their child’s education. We know that when whānau and schools work closely together, significant gains can be made in student achievement,” says Ms Parata.

The report also says that six out of 10 whānau surveyed believe they have effective relationships with their local school.
