Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools?

The team Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Hi neighbours - Jacinda Ardern has announced that all schools and kura would be expected, by 2022, to teach the country's history.

Curriculum changes would reset a national framework so that all learners and ākonga were aware of key aspects of New Zealand history and how they had influenced and shaped the nation.

What do you think? Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools, or are there other, more important subjects to teach?

Rural rental required

Christine from Hikurangi Coastal

Due to a relationship breakdown I am seeking a new home. The situation is far from ideal but I am hoping to start fresh and get back on my own feet. I am not able to buy a new home yet, but this is a possibility again in the near future.

I currently own my home in Marua Hikurangi. I am a solo mom with two young kids under 5 years old. I do have some animals. My hobby is breeding and hand raising parrots which you can see here on Facebook: Christine's Aviaries

I know I am asking a lot but I can only hope for something suitable to pop up for my family and animals until we are back on our feet. Please if you have a empty farm house or rural home available please contact me directly through private message

Thank you 🤞
