Annual review of language and diversity Jan 2011

The following report from the Human Rights Commission: Te Waka Reo site gives a broad overview of the annual review of language and diversity. Read article here

The following is an excerpt from the news article outlining suggestions for the reorganization of Te Taurawhiri i te Reo Maori and areas of responsibility

Te Taura Whiri should be given increased powers. This would ensure that public bodies are compelled to contribute to te reo’s revival and key agencies are held properly accountable for the strategies they adopt. For instance, education curricula involving te reo must be approved, and public bodies in districts with a sufficient number and/or proportion of te reo speakers and schools with a certain proportion of Māori students must submit Māori language plans for approval.

I believe that these are some good objectives as a step in the right direction that will require a collective effort as much as is possible, with a core governing body which will be essential for achievement in these areas.

    Tena koe e te Matua,

    E whakaae ana au ki ta te purongo i korero ai e pa ana ki te whakanuinga i te mana o te Taura Whiri i te Reo Maori ki te mea i nga tari Kawanatanga ki te whakatakoto rautaki hei hapai ake i te takapau wharanui o te whakaora reo.

    Tena koe Tāne, āe ra ko te whakatakoto rautaki me te rapu tangata, tohunga ranei e tika ana he timatanga pai tēnā.
