Māori and Pasifika students are not failing in our education system,
Our education system is failing them!
Would be an interesting statement to use as a debate for students in class.
"That the education system is failing Maori and Pasifika students".
Or a staff PD session - to check their cultural responsiveness to Maori and Pasifika students in their classrooms - to view things from the other side of the fence.
