NZCER has a long history of conducting research to support the revitalisation of te reo Māori. We continue to carry out research to support the aspirations of whānau and Māori communities to grow te reo Māori as the heritage language of Māori, and a national language for all New Zealanders. Our work contributes to NZCER’s strategic priorities of upholding mana Māori, whakamana Māori; decolonising education; and improving equity for ākonga and equity in education.
By providing research about how we can all contribute to the revitalisation of te reo Māori, we hope to see whānau and communities gain better access to quality reo Māori education that supports their aspirations.
