as te reo teacher shortage hits
A shortage of te reo teachers is being felt across Aotearoa, and there’s no quick fix, say education leaders.
New Zealand Principals' Federation national president Dr Cherie Taylor-Patel said the issue was a problem right across the country.
“We’ve never had enough,” she said.
“And now that we have a bit of a renaissance happening, with people really realising the value of te reo and te ao Māori world view, teachers who are fluent in te reo are like hens’ teeth.”
