New path for Maori researchers
The Council for Educational Research’s Teaching and Learning Research Initiative has launched a new pathway for kaupapa Māori research.
Sheridan McKinley, the council’s kaiwhakahaere Māori, says this year the initiative has about $1.5 million to spend on research of strategic importance within the early childhood or compulsory school sectors, research that supports success for Māori learners across all sectors, and research that supports success for Pasifika learners.
Whatua Tū Aka provides an alternative pathway for researchers with proposals that have a strongly articulated kaupapa Māori focus that will have a transformative impact on the educational experiences of Māori.
Whatua Tū Aka proposals must be for research that is by Māori, for Māori, and with Māori.
