    Chris Hipkins says an extra member on a school board, won't change outcomes for Maori students

    Chris Hipkins says an extra member on a school board, won't change outcomes for Maori students


    As reforms are unveiled to the Tomorrow's Schools system, the Education Minister says persistent inequality is unacceptable.

    But a proposal's been shelved for a mana whenua representative on every board .

    Hipkins says schools need to honour the Treaty of Waitangi, and engage with communities - and don't want that to be tokenistic.

    He says simply putting someone in place won't necessarily create the shift in thinking they're aiming for.
