Kura kaupapa Māori is reconsidering school ties with Auckland’s Unitec, following allegations of racism, Stuff reports. Tensions went on high level between Unitec’s administration and Māori leaders, when the tertiary institution appointed a new board and chief executive without consulting Māori representatives. The decision to cut ties may see a drop in Māori student numbers for Unitec, as the kura’s year 12 and 13 students attend classes at the institution and many often move on to study there after graduating.
