Cultural Capability

Overview

Cultural capability is about understanding, valuing and amplifying different world views, perspectives, experiences, and measures of success. The New Zealand Curriculum is underpinned by our commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and this requires action based on understanding that the education system has underperformed for Māori learners and their whānau over an extended period. Cultural capability is critical.
