A Maori education researcher nominated for a New Zealander of the Year award says improving Maori education results is the responsibility of the whole sector.

Waikato University Associate Professor Mere Berryman was one of the people behind Te Kotahitanga, a programme that helped secondary school teachers find better ways to relate to their Maori students.

Although the programme was killed off by the National Government, Dr Berryman says it taught schools the relationships they had with their students was really important.

It then becomes a question of building on those relationships.

"What I guess Te Kotahitanga stopping did was it promoted people to think about 'What can I do? What is my agency?' in this whole question of equity for excellence so that Maori students feel they belong in the education system as learners," Dr Berryman says.

Maori shouldn’t be seen as a problem in the system that need changing, because it is the system that needs to change.
