Another reason in this morning's Herald to separate School and State.
All student teachers will have to prove they can pronounce Maori in order to graduate, under Labour's Maori policy launched yesterday...Dr John Langley, dean of the education faculty at the University of Auckland, said he believed all children should be taught Maori in schools and this would be the first step towards achieving that. "I'm sure it would put people off [becoming teachers] but progress is not made on the basis of public opinion."'Progress' for people such as this is apparently made by imposing one's values upon impressionable children in the State's factory schools. Time to take back the schools from the self-anointed elite.
