    Rawiri Waititi is on the war path ... over treatment of Maori students

    Rawiri Waititi is on the war path ... over treatment of Maori students


    Two student teachers say Clive School wouldn't the to be referred to as whaea and matua , translated as Aunty and Uncle.

    The Maori Party co-leader says the terms are about respect - whereas the Pakeha Sir and Miss are about hierarchy.
