Today, the elite minority of the Maori 15% of the country’s population seeks 50%, or more, of power over the majority 85% of the population. All of these manifestations are glaring Kiwis in the face, and many are now aware of the danger but are unsure of what to do.
For many years as a practising teacher in New Zealand, I watched the gradual but tangible creep of Maori influence upon the NZ education system. ‘And what is wrong with that?’ the Maori educationists and culturally liberated activists, may cry. ‘Nothing at all’, I would reply, ‘so long as the same opportunity is offered to every other ethnic group in the country’.
