An overview of Tertiary reforms in Education and their significance for Maori



"This paper is predicated on the premise that the gaps between Maori and Pakeha in education, helath, employment and economic development are an artefact of our colonial history." "It is against the backdrop of power that this paper looks at the Maori struggle for emancipation and its facilitation by the reform of tertiary education in the 1990s."
