Te Aute College Graduates
This PDF looks at the role of the State in the education of indigenous peoples. It charts the historical development of Maori education in New Zealand and presents a compelling argument that while most teachers believe they can make a difference to the life chances of their pupils, the system is actually designed to ensure their failure. In looking at Maori education history, it begins with the Mission Schools, moves through to the limitations placed upon the highly successful Te Aute College in the 1930s and culminates with an analysis of the undermining of the highly successful Whare Wananga in 2004-2006.
