Effective governance - Supporting education success as Maori

Boards of trustees are accountable for the performance of their schools and kura. The key focus of their role is raising student achievement. This is particularly important when we look at the success of Māori students in our education system.

As a board, you are responsible for leading and supporting the changes that will allow Māori students at your school to achieve education success as Māori. In many schools, these changes are already underway.

This resource has been developed for boards of English-medium schools. It aims to help you to empower your school to take positive action. Whether your school has only a few Māori students or Māori students are the majority, they have a legal right to effective education under the Treaty of Waitangi, and their success is critical to New Zealand's school system. This resource will point you toward further resources and assistance that will help you steer your school along its journey towards Māori enjoying education success as Māori.
