Ko te mātau ki te reo Māori, ahurea hoki ka herea mā ngā kaiako ā tōna wā, koia te whakatau ki Te Kōmihana Uiuinga a te Karauna ki ngā Tūkinotanga i raro i te Karauna, e ai ki tētahi pūrongo a Te Reo Irirangi o Aotearoa.

E meatia ana, nā te tāhuhu rangapū o Te Kaunihera Kaiako o Aotearoa, nā Lesley Hoskin te kōrero nei i whakaputa i roto i ngā whiriwhiringa a Te Kōmihana mō te nui hemihemi o ngā tamariki Māori e noho ana i raro i ngā manaakitanga a te Karauna, kei te tūkinohia hoki. 

E ai ki a RNZ, nā Hoskin i kī atu ki te pae whiriwhiri, kua oti kē te here i ngā tumuaki kia whakaatu i te whai a ngā kaiako ki te whakapakari i ō rātou mōhiotanga ki te reo, ki te mātauranga Māori, ā, ka mārō ake te tū a te kaunihera ā tōna wā.

"The reality is that at some point, we're going to have to say no longer can you have a certificate to teach in Aotearoa New Zealand without that competence."

E 317 ngā kaiako i tapepe te eke ki taua here i te tau ki muri, e ai ki a Hoskin.
