Perfecting the Partnership: Revitalising the Maori Language in New Zealand Education and Society 1987-2014
Benton, Richard A.
Language, Culture and Curriculum, v28 n2 p99-112 2015
This paper looks at aspects of Maori language revitalisation since the passage of the Maori Language Act, 1987 which gave official status to the language. It is a sequel to an article on Maori language in education published in this journal the following year [Benton, R. A. (1988). "The Maori language in New Zealand education." "Language, Culture and Curriculum", 1(2), 75-83]. It traverses developments in the compulsory education sector, the strategies formulated by government agencies, public attitudes towards the language, and policies articulated by the major political parties. Particular attention is paid to the observations and recommendations made in relation to the Maori language in the Waitangi Tribunal's report "Ko Aotearoa Tenei" [(2011). Wellington: Legislation Direct].
