Whānau are integral to the educational wellbeing of Māori students in English-medium education. However, very little Māori educational research has been carried out with an explicit focus on identifying the critical issues for whānau in education.

This report presents the findings of a research project conducted by NZCER in collaboration with Literacy Aotearoa. The research asked the question: “What are the impacts on whanau when parents/caregivers undertake programmes to develop their literacy and numeracy in English.”

How well Mäori children do at school is strongly linked with how well parents and children relate to school staff.

Kaupapa Mäori research is a generic term used to describe a range of practice relating particularly to research by, with, and for Mäori.

Te Wāhanga has been working with the Institute of Environmental Science and Research Ltd (ESR) on a project about future food technologies and Māori well-being.
