Ka Hikitia - renewed strategy released


The Ministry of Education has released a second iteration of its Māori education strategy called Ka Hikitia – Accelerating Success 2013–2017.

This updated strategy aims to rapidly change how the education system performs so that all Māori students gain the skills, qualifications and knowledge they need to enjoy and achieve education success as Māori.

Ka Hikitia – Accelerating Success 2013–2017 is a revised strategy, not a brand new one. Its predecessor, Ka Hikitia – Managing for Success 2008–2012, set the direction for improving how the education system performs for Māori students.

The revised strategy builds on the changes and success we have seen through Ka Hikitia – Managing for Success 2008–2012. It celebrates success and accelerates the pace for more of it.
