Kohanga reo staff from around the country have been at the national trust in Wellington this week looking at what they need to do to take the organisation forward.

The movement has been locked in a battle with Education Minister Hekia Parata for three years over its structure and governance that has meant efforts to resolve its Treaty of Waitangi claim have stalled.

Chief executive Kararaina Cribb says it also faces competition from other early childhood education options, and the expections on young working oparents are different to 30 years ago.

She says at it’s heart kohanga must always be about increasing use of te reo Maori.

"What is it we want from Kohanga Reo, what is it that Kohanga Reo provided previously, are we still providing the same things now. We are looking at our kaupapa ki te whakahoungia, to renew the logic of it and provide a better service. To entice whanau to come and grow their reo in their whanau and with their children

Kararaina Cribb says the value of kohanga reo is not just what it does for the children but what it does for mothers and the whole whanau who become involved

The fear of admitting our Prison and Justice system is racist
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: The fear that seems to underpin so many of those voices attacking the Waitangi Tribunal's response that the failure to lower Maori incarceration and reoffending amounts to a Treaty breach needs to be acknowledged.
How Maori, young voters and Women will decide the 2017 Election
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: If we look at the opinion poll stats 6 months out from the last 3 elections, National over poll by a significant percentage, Labour over poll by a smaller percentage, the Greens are static and NZ First rises when Labour's vote collapses.
