Effectiveness of Te Kotahitanga

This report provides sound evidence that can guide policy decisions relative to the national effort to raise Māori student academic achievement, as expressed in Ka Hikitia, which aims toward “Māori students enjoying and achieving education success as Maori.” Notably, Effectiveness of Te Kotahitanga Phase 5, 2010-12 finds that: “The achievement of Māori students (as measured by NCEA levels 1–3) in Phase 5 schools improved at around three times the rate of Māori in the comparison schools,” “The proportion of Māori students coming back into year 13 increased markedly in Phase 5 schools,” and “By 2012 the number of year 13 students achieving NCEA level 3 in Phase 5 schools was nearly three times what it had been four years earlier.”

It is clear from what the students told researchers in 2001 and again in 2004 and 2005, that the quality of the relationships that are established in classrooms affects their attendance, learning and achievement (see here).
