Ākonga Māori (Māori students) should be able to have good educational experiences that recognise and support their identity, reo Māori, and culture in any school they attend, as well as their learning.

The 2016 national survey shows increased awareness and attention to incorporating tikanga Māori and te reo Māori into English-medium schools to better support the identity, wellbeing, and achievement of ākonga Māori. 

The survey was conducted from August to early September 2016 and was sent to a representative sample of 349 English-medium state and state-integrated primary and intermediate schools.
