Did you know?

I reported a while back how surprised people are when told that the proportion of Maori in was 40% higher than their proportion of the adult population.

Now even I was surprised when reading the annual report of the student loans scheme to find that 17.2% of Maori aged over 15 are in tertiary education, while only 9.5% of non-Maori aged over 15 are in tertiary education.

So Maori are twice as likely as non Maori to be in tertiary education.

Also outnumber men in tertiary by almost 50% now.

So someone tell me again about how we are targetting on need? Why is there not an outcry over the low status of non-Maori males in tertiary education?
