INCLUDING NEW ZEALAND HISTORY IN THE NATIONAL CURRICULUM


05/02/2021




Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- The Wellington administration offered to end the system, which stipulates that all children in New Zealand learn about the history of the Māori people and British colonialism in lessons and that schools choose how to teach these lessons.

Supporters of the amendment argue that the history taught by the system already in place in the country tends to cover up the persecution of indigenous peoples during the colony.

Critics of the amendment argue that the new curriculum will fail to present a balanced view of the past.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has published a draft of the course which he plans to introduce next year.

Speaking during a visit between the British and Māori people to the battlefield in Ruapekapeka in 1846, Ardern asked the community to convey their views on the draft to the government.

The offered new curriculum included the founding Treaty of Waitangi, signed in 1840 between the arrival of the Māori people in New Zealand, early colonial history, the migration of New Zealand, its colonization, and more than 500 Indigenous Māori chiefs.
